TV Land Orders Lopez Starring George Lopez; Bravo Orders 2nd Season of Odd Mom Out

George Lopez

TV Land continues to expand its slate of original, contemporary comedies with the series pickup of Lopez, starring and executive produced by renowned stand-up comedian and actor George Lopez. The half hour single camera serialized comedy has a 12 episode order and will premiere in 2016. John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky (Silicon Valley, King Of The Hill) will write and executive produce the series. Michael Rotenberg (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia) of 3 Arts Entertainment and Troy Miller (Arrested Development) will also executive produce. The comedy, revolving around America's most successful Hispanic American comedian, explores how George 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. Lopez's groundbreaking comedy George Lopez, which aired on ABC from 2002-2007, is a consistent hit on TV Land's sister network Nick at Nite.
