TBS books George Lopez talker


TBS announced plans to “change the late-night landscape” with a “groundbreaking” new talk show featuring George Lopez. The new talker set to launch in November is billed as breaking the late-night mold with an “outdoor street-party atmosphere, live musical and comedy performances and celebrity appearances.”

“While high-energy, Lopez’s new series will feature a casual environment that invites guests to engage fully with the crowd, giving audience members the chance to interact with the guests, ask questions and walk away feeling as though they’ve experienced something new,” the network said.

“George Lopez is one of the most talented, popular and successful comedic performers today, and we are thrilled to partner with him and with TBS on a nightly talk-variety show,” said Hilary Estey McLoughlin, President of Telepictures Productions. “He has an extraordinary ability to authentically connect with a diverse audience and will bring a really different point of view that will be a game-changer in late night,” she added.

The new show is from 2.2 Productions, paraMedia Inc. and Telepictures Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television.
