Saint George is an American television sitcom created by George Lopez, David McFadzean, and Matt Williams, which originally aired on FX from March 6, 2014, to May 8, 2014.[1][2][3] It is Lopez's first starring role in a scripted series since his ABC show George Lopez.[4]

As part of Debmar-Mercury and Lionsgate Television's syndication model, if the series hit certain ratings thresholds in its first 10-episode run, that would have triggered an additional 90-episode order.[2][5] The program fell short of those thresholds and Saint George was canceled on June 25, 2014, after one season.[6]

Plot

Saint George revolves around the hectic life of a recently divorced working class Mexican-American who has become a successful entrepreneur. Lopez portrays the main character who must balance his family life—consisting of a demanding ex-wife, an 11-year-old son, and his mother, uncle, and cousin—and teaching history class at a night school once a week.[7][8]
