George Lopez’s return to television is scheduled for March…
The 52-year-old Mexican American comedian’s FX comedy series Saint George will premiere at 9:00 pm on Thursday, March 6.
Saint George, the second of three 10/90 comedy shows set for FX, is part of Debmar-Mercury and Lionsgate Television’s syndication model.
The half-hour, multi-camera ensemble series centers on George Lopez (Lopez), a recently divorced working class guy turned successful entrepreneur caught between two cultures.
If the series hits certain ratings thresholds in its first 10 episodes, it will trigger an additional 90-episode order.
It joins FX’s Charlie Sheen comedy Anger Management, which followed the same model and is now set to enter off-net syndication in September.
Matt Williams and his Wind Dancer Films partner David McFadzean co-created the series with Lopez.
Lopez last appeared on television as the host of the late-night talk show Lopez Tonight from 2009-2011.
His last starring role in a sitcom was as the lead on ABC’s George Lopez.
