George Lopez has reportedly landed his first television project since the cancellation of his late-night series Lopez Tonight in August.

The 50-year-old Mexican-American comedian/actor is developing a comedy project for Fox based on the life of comedian Mark Viera, according to TV Guide.

Lopez would not, however, appear on camera in the untitled half-hour sitcom. Instead, Viera will star as a blue-collar man who purchases a building in the Bronx in order to stay close to his roots and teach his son street smarts. But the decision not only surprises his wife, it backfires when his extended Latino family moves in.

More details to come.
