The Brothers Garcia
The Brothers García is an American teen sitcom that aired on Nickelodeon from July 23, 2000 to August 8, 2004. It was among the first projects of Sí TV, an effort to produce programming featuring Latino characters that are aimed at a diverse audience.
The series follows the life of the Latino-American García family, as narrated by the adult version of one of the family's sons, Larry. Larry recounts his life alongside George, Carlos, and Lorena (his two brothers and twin sister, respectively), and the way they deal with everyday problems such as school, work, growing up, and all living in one house in San Antonio, Texas.
