According to THR, George Lopez is in talks with Debmar-Mercury to create a new sitcom. It is said to center around Lopez, and should begin with 10 episodes, with an additional 90 if certain rating points are hit. Though Debmar-Mercury did not give a comment, many are speculating that the company is looking to Lopez to fill a Latino gap in programming. They also create with Tyler Perry and Charlie Sheen (his new project, Anger Management), so Lopez will be able to stand out on his own with Debmar.
I’m looking forward to seeing George back in the sitcom role, after gaining less-than-stellar ratings in the late night TV talk show spot.
