TV Land's Lopez Returns March 29 with New Addition; Amazon Gets Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn for Comedy

Lopez

TV Land has cast actor and social media celeb Ray Diaz (East Los High, Real Husbands of Hollywood) on the second season of Lopez starring comedian George Lopez, which returns to the network on Wednesday, March 29th at 10:30pm ET/PT. Diaz will make his debut in the first episode of the new season as Hector, a friend from Manolo's (Anthony "Citric" Campos) past, who becomes like a son to George and a little brother to Manolo and Maronzio (Maronzio Vance). With George's help, Hector tries to get on his feet and find something he's good at. The ladies love him, but that doesn't seem to get him very far. After working all through season one to get a residency show in Vegas, season two of Lopez finds George frustrated with the tediousness of having to do the same show every night. Along with his manager Olly (Hayley Huntley) and his opening act Maronzio, George tries to move on to bigger and better things that will make him relevant again. This season will also see George exchange one-off dates for a steadier romantic relationship, and Manolo will go back to school to earn his degree.


I Love Dick - Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn

Amazon Studios announced Friday, May 12 will be the premiere date for Jill Soloway's highly-anticipated series I Love Dick in the US and UK. Adapted from Chris Kraus' 1997 cult classic, combining feminist art criticism, memoir, and epistolary novel, I Love Dick is a bold new series from the team that brought you Transparent. Chris (Kathryn Hahn) is a frustrated New York filmmaker who finds herself marooned in Marfa, Texas, where her academic husband, Sylvère (Griffin Dunne), has a writing residency. Amid the dusty silence, art snobs, and tumbleweeds, she meets renowned scholar Dick (Kevin Bacon). An infuriating and beguiling exchange with this enigmatic, macho character unleashes in her a dramatic awakening. I Love Dick will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday, January 23. Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn, Griffin Dunne, India Menuez, Lilly Mojekwu, Roberta Colindrez, Jill Soloway, Co-Creator Sarah Gubbins and other cast and crew will be attendance.
