text http://www.tvguide.com/ TVGuide.com is reporting that text http://www.georgelopez.com/ George Lopez has cut a deal with FOX for a new half-hour sitcom‘«™but this time Lopez will be producing a show starring and based on the life of a different comedian--Mark Viera.
According to Fox, "Viera stars as a blue-collar man who buys a building in the Bronx in order to stay close to his roots and teach his son street smarts. His decision surprises his wife and backfires when his extended Latino family moves in."
Lopez has been a busy man since his talk show, "Lopez Tonight," was abruptly canceled by TBS. This is his first sitcom project since then.
A pilot isn't a sale, and‘«Űas we've seen with plenty of other shows‘«Űactual episodes on the air could be months away, but we'll keep you posted as the story (and the project) develops.
