The half hour single-camera serialized comedy aired for two seasons. “Lopez Tonight,” a late-night television talk show on TBS, also ran for two seasons. It represented Lopez’s return to series television after co-creating, writing, producing, and starring in Warner Bros. Television’s groundbreaking hit sitcom “George Lopez“, which ran for six seasons on ABC. “George Lopez” remains a hit with viewers in syndication on both broadcast stations and cable’s Nick at Nite, ranking as one of the top-rated shows on the network and among the top five comedies and top 20 weekly programs in syndication.
In 2015, Lopez was seen in the Lionsgate inspirational drama, “Spare Parts“. Produced by Lopez, the film is based on a true story about four undocumented Mexican-American teenagers from Phoenix who team up to build an underwater robot that wins the national robotics competition.
