Set in Mexico in the 1970's era, Seis Manos centers on three orphaned martial arts warriors who join forces with a DEA agent and a Mexican Federale to battle for justice after their beloved mentor is murdered on the streets of their tiny border town.

Seis Manos is co-created by Powerhouse Animation CEO Brad Graeber and writer Alvaro Rodriguez (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series). Noted screenwriter Daniel Dominguez (Captain Underpants, Oishi High School Battle, Spongebob Squarepants) also joins the series, which will be directed by Willis Bulliner (Agents of Mayhem).

The series stars Aislinn Derbez, Mike Colter, Jonny Cruz, Angelica Vale, Vic Chao and Danny Trejo and will launch in Fall 2019.

As relentless a scholar as she is a Kung Fu warrior, Isabela believes in order, sees justice at the heart of the universe, and sees herself as duty bound to be a living embodiment of that justice.

Mike Colter (Luke Cage) as Brister

Brister is a DEA agent sent on a mission to Mexico by his racist boss, and he has spent his life proving to "The Man" that he's worth a damn by consistently outperforming him. Brister is talented as hell, smarter than most, and he knows it.

Jonny Cruz (Overwatch) as Jesus

At once a brutal fighter and a big ol' silly, charming oaf, Jesus is the middle child of the Manos. He lives for pleasure, hates conflict, and just wants his hard-headed brother and sister to get along.

Angelica Vale (Jane The Virgin) as Garcia

The first female graduate out of her police academy, Garcia was assigned to police the sleepy town of San Simon by a police force who couldn't see past her gender to her impressive capabilities. She will soon get a chance to prove her worth in ways she could never possibly have imagined.

Vic Chao (Mortal Kombat X) as Chiu

A wise, calm, happy old warrior. Chiu's past is cloaked in mystery. He is adopted father and mentor to the three Manos, training them not just in the deadly art of Kung Fu, but also the esoteric path to enlightenment and ultimate wisdom that is the Dao.

Danny Trejo (Machete) as El Balde

Having grown up where only the strong seem to survive, El Balde has lived his life in relentless pursuit of proof of his superior worth. Vicious and unrelenting, El Balde takes sadistic pleasure in the misery he causes as he climbs over a mountain of bodies to the top of Mexico's bloody, nascent drug empire.
