TBS is going forward with a late-night talk show starring comedian George Lopez.
The network plans to launch the show, which will air Monday through Thursday, in November.
Mr. Lopez’ program is being produced by 2.2 Productions, paraMedia Inc. and Telepictures Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mr. Lopez and Jim Paratore will be executive producers.
The network said the show is designed to bring excitement to late night with an outdoor street party atmosphere and include visits from celebrities, live music and comedy guests.
“George Lopez is a special talent, with an everyman appeal that makes him uniquely positioned to be the next great late-night host,” Michael Wright, executive VP, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement. “George and TBS are going to change the late-night television landscape and bring a brand-new energy to the talk-show genre by giving it a street-party atmosphere. We’re excited to see this show come to life.”
