Lopez is an American semi-autobiographical single-camera sitcom television series created by John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky and Jeff Stilson, starring George Lopez. TV Land gave a 12-episode straight-to-series order in August 2015. The series premiered on March 30, 2016. On June 3, 2016, TV Land renewed Lopez for a second season.
The series follows a semi-fictionalized version of George Lopez and his day-to-day life, as he balances being a famous comedian while dealing with interpersonal relationships and trying to stay true to the Latino community in which he grew up. He also struggles to adjust to being a celebrity in a world where social media is a prevailing phenomenon.
The first season finds George working with a new manager who helps him pursue a residency show in Las Vegas.
