George Lopez is officially heading back to the small screen…
Lopez vs. Lopez, which hails from The Conners duo Bruce Helford and Debby Wolfe, is a working-class family comedy about dysfunction, reconnection and all the pain and joy in between.
George and Mayan star alongside Selenis Leyva, Brice Gonzalez and Matt Shively with Laci Mosley and Kiran Deol recurring.
No decision has been made as to whether it will launch in the fall or midseason.
Helford co-created ABC’s George Lopez sitcom, which ran for six seasons from 2002.
Wolfe and Helford will both executive produce with George Lopez and 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Katie Newman. Mayan Lopez is a producer.
Helford’s Mohawk Productions produces with Travieso Productions, Mi Vida Loba and 3 Arts. Universal Television is the studio.
The project originated with Wolfe, a Salvadoran-American writer, who came up with the idea and worked on it with George and Mayan Lopez. Helford helped connect Wolfe with the Lopezes and has been involved in the project in a supporting role.
