Fans will be getting another chance to enter the world of George Lopez soon on TV. It was revealed today that he will be moving forward with a series project based on his life. For 5 years, George ran his previous sitcom George Lopez on ABC and now will start a new chapter on TV Land.
The cable network (TV Land) has picked up 12 episodes of Lopez, starring and executive produced by George Lopez, for a 2016 premiere. The order was made based on a short presentation and a pilot script written by Silicon Valley co-creators/executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, who will write and executive produce Lopez. Also executive producing are Michael Rotenberg of 3 Arts Entertainment and Troy Miller. In the vein of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Louie, Lopez revolves around America’s most successful Hispanic American comedian – George Lopez playing himself — and explores how he struggles between his two worlds and crises – often of his own making. Too rich to go back to his working class Latino roots, and too “brown” to feel comfortable in his affluent celebrity life, being George Lopez comes with many problems.
