George Lopez, who was pushed out of TBS's late-night lineup a couple of years ago after Conan O'Brien got his time slot, has landed at FX, where he'll star in a sitcom called "Saint George."
It's Lopez's first starring role in a sitcom since his ABC series,"George Lopez," ended in 2007.
This time, Lopez is playing a successful engineer. Naturally, he has a demanding ex-wife and an overbearing mother. He also has an 11-year-old son and an uncle, who were described as neither demanding nor overbearing in Thursday's announcement.
The "Saint" part of the show's name stems from the character's having a new role as a philanthropist, "giving back" by teaching night school.
The new show is Lopez's "no-holds-barred comedic take on the tensions surrounding race, class, sex and family life in Los Angeles through the eyes of a man straddling two separate cultures," said Lionsgate Television's president, Kevin Beggs, Thursday.
