The CW Developing Musical Drama with George Lopez
George Lopez is about to go STAR CRAZY.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lopez is currently developing an hour-long musical drama for The CW, with THE WONDER YEARS' Bob Brush and Mel Harris set to write. Lopez will produce.
The series, titled STAR CRAZY, follows "a young Latina singer as she rises from poverty to fame and captures the heart of the nation along the way."
Lopez, whose eponymous sitcom George Lopez initially aired on ABC from 2002-07 and went on to perform well in off-network syndication, will co-write the first episode of the series with Williams and McFadzean.
In addition to his television career, Lopez continues to perform as a standup comic and to record comedy albums. Team Leader was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. He also wrote an autobiography entitled Why You Crying, which was published that same year.
Regarded as one of the top comedians, Lopez has received several honors for his work and contributions to the Latino community, including the 2003 Latino Spirit Award for Excellence in Television. He was also named one of "The Top 25 Hispanics in America" by Time magazine in 2005.
