NEW YORK: Let's get one thing straight: Donald Trump is not a consultant to "Bordertown".Next door to Bud and his family reside the Gonzalezes, whose genial patriarch, Ernesto, has a thriving landscape business after less than a decade settled in the U.S."Bordertown" creator Mark Hentemann says it began as a modern-day update of Archie Bunker, the apoplectic working man from the pioneering 1970s sitcom "All in the Family". Among them is Lalo Alcaraz, creator of the Latino comic strip, "La Cucaracha," who brings to the show informed details (like Latino men's huge belt buckles and the practice of Christmas lights strewn year-round outside Latino homes).Alcaraz co-wrote the "Borderwall" episode with Hentemann more than a year ago.It works too well, destroying the local economy and leaving Bud jobless."He said, 'The MEXICANS are gonna pay for MY border wall!'"Reflecting his recent stint running "Family Guy" (and the role of "Family Guy" mastermind Seth MacFarlane as an executive producer), Hentemann's new show takes plenty of shots at pop culture – including Bud's 5-year-old daughter (a chubby beauty-pageant veteran who picks up where Honey Boo Boo left off) as well as the threat of interplanetary aliens, visions of the Virgin Mary, Philip Seymour Hoffman's drug overdose and the WNBA.
