TV Land Renews Comedy ‘Lopez’

TV Land has ordered a second season of Lopez, starring and executive produced by performer George Lopez. Lopez airsWednesdays at 10 p.m. and season one concludes June 22.  

Lopez is loosely based on the comedian’s life. He’s done the semi-autobiographical thing a few times before, playing “George Lopez” on ABC comedy George Lopez, and “George” on FX series Saint George. He also hosted Lopez Tonight on TBS from 2009 to 2011.

“This one is the most like me, and the most like the people around me,” he told B&C before season one of Lopez aired.  

Lopez is also executive produced and written by John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, and Michael Rotenberg of 3 Arts Entertainment too is an exec producer alongside Troy Miller, who directed all episodes of season one and produced the show via Dakota Pictures.

Michael Malone, senior content producer at B+C/Multichannel News, covers network programming, including entertainment, news and sports on broadcast, cable and streaming; and local broadcast television. He hosts the podcasts Busted Pilot, about what’s new in television, and Series Business, a chat with the creator of a new program, and writes the column “The Watchman.” He joined B+C in 2005. His journalism has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Playboy and New York magazine.
