Disney has announced that the Latin American series, “Butter Man: The Slickest Mexcian Thief” aka “El Mantequilla,” will be coming to Disney+ in many countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, on Wednesday, 13th September 2023.  This is the same day as when the show will be released on Star+ in Latin America.

In Mexico, 1982, Emiliano Escamilla, a notorious scam artist and impersonator, plans to avenge his mother, who was wrongfully imprisoned for the crimes of his father, “El Mantequilla,” the most famous and pursued swindler of the 1950s. Elena Robles, the first female detective in her division, and Pablo Garduño, a young and ambitious reporter, set out to unravel his scams and find out who is the new “Mantequilla” and how to stop him. However, Emiliano, Elena, and Pablo will learn that things are not always what they seem, and each will learn that the world they are operating in is as capable of corrupting them as it is of destroying them. Mixing dark comedy, action, and drama, “Butter Man: The Slickest Mexican Thief” is a classic story of scams and impossible plans, where nothing is as it seems.

The series stars Alberto Guerra (Emiliano Escamilla), Mayra Batalla (Elena Robles), Rafael Sánchez Navarro (General Cuauhtémoc Robles) and Iván Aragón (Pablo Garduño). Also starring in the series are Alejandro Calva (Botello), Eligio Meléndez (Beto Benavídez), Hernán Mendoza (Mantequilla), Enrique Arreola (Camacho), Carmen Beato (Margarita) and Abril Schreiber (Tatiana). Felipe Martínez Amador is the showrunner and director of El Mantequilla together with Javier Solar. “El Mantequilla” has been written by Martínez Amador, Olfa Masmoudi and Ingrid de Lassé.

Some new character posters for the series have also been released:
