‘Bordertown’ Episode Guide (April 24): Bud Befriends a Reluctant Ernesto

“Wildfire” (04/24/16) – When a wildfire threatens Mexifornia, all residents are required to evacuate.

However, Bud refuses to leave his house, which catches fire, and Ernesto must come to the rescue to save him.

Meanwhile J.C. and Becky decide to take a break from their relationship and see other people in order to explore what it’s like to date before committing to each other in an all-new episode of “Bordertown” airing Sunday, April 24 (7:00-7:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

“Bordertown” centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. Bud Buckwald (Hank Azaria, “The Simpsons”) is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to Ernesto Gonzalez (Nicholas Gonzalez, “Sleepy Hollow”), an ambitious family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than Bud – which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for Bud.

Bud is married to Janice Buckwald (Alex Borstein, “Family Guy”), both the wisest and most oblivious member of the family. The Buckwald kids include Becky (Borstein), a socially awkward, big-boned geek; Sanford (Judah Friedlander, “30 Rock”), a loser who thinks he’s a player; and Gert (Missi Pyle, “The Exes,” “Galaxy Quest”), a beauty pageant-obsessed five-year-old with a pet pig. Meanwhile, living the American Dream next door are the Gonzalezes, including Maria (Stephanie Escajeda, “100 Things To Do Before High School”), Ernesto’s no-nonsense wife; their son, Ruiz (guest voice Efren Ramirez, “Napoleon Dynamite”); and their 21-year-old nephew, J.C. (Gonzalez), a graduate student who is engaged to Becky and frequently butts heads with Bud.

As Bud and Ernesto’s paths begin to cross, their two families soon become bound by romance, conflict and, perhaps most importantly, friendship – a word that means the same, no matter what side of the border you’re from.

“Bordertown” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Mark Hentemann. Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane (“Family Guy”) are executive producers. Alex Carter (“Family Guy”) and Dan Vebber (“American Dad,” “Futurama”) are co-executive producers. Lalo Alcaraz (“La Cucaracha”) and Gustavo Arellano (“¡Ask a Mexican!”) are consulting producers. Valentina L. Garza (“The Simpsons”) is a supervising producer.
