FX newest comedy series Saint George will premiere on Thursday March 6th at 9/8c, the network announced today. This is the second of three comedies FX has picked up under the 10/90 model, meaning if the series hits a certain ratings threshold across its 10 episode first season the network will trigger an additional 90-episode order.
Created by George Lopez, Matt Williams and David McFadzean, Saint George revolves around the chaotic life of George Lopez, a recently divorced working class Mexican-American turned successful entrepreneur. He struggles to balance the parenting demands of his All-American Anglo ex-wife, “Mackenzie,” and the cultural expectations of his overbearing Mexican-American mother, “Alma.” As George attempts to relate to his 11-year-old son, “Harper,” his life is further complicated by his fun-loving but freeloading uncle “Tio” and cousin “Junior.” As a wealthy businessman, George also gives back by teaching history to a multi-cultural classroom at a night school in downtown Los Angeles, where he’s supervised by tough and sexy Assistant Principal “Concepcion.” Wind Dancer Films, Travieso Productions, 3 Arts Entertainment, Lionsgate TV and Debmar Mercury are producing the series which stars George Lopez (George Lopez), Jenn Lyon (Justified), Olga Merediz (In the Heights), Diana Maria Riva (The Bridge), Kaden Gibson (Review With Forrest MacNeil), David Zayas (Dexter) and Danny Trejo (Machete Kills).
