George Lopez, whose sitcom helped power ratings among adults for Nick at Nite, will be starring in a movie for kids that will air on Nickelodeon.
Mr. Lopez also is executive producer of the film, “Mr. Troop Mom,” which is scheduled to air June 18.
The comedian plays a workaholic single dad who volunteers to go to a weekend camp to bond with his tween daughter.
The film is produced by Nickelodeon in partnership with Warner Premiere and George Lopez Presents.
“George Lopez is one of America’s funniest, most beloved comedians, and he has the natural ability to connect with people of all ages,” said Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon’s executive VP for development and original programming.
In a statement, Mr. Lopez said the film “has heart, action and wild and crazy comedy.” He added, “I’m excited to keep building my relationship with Nickelodeon, and this Warner Premiere movie is perfect viewing for a family audience.”
Also starring in the movie are Jane Lynch as the camp director and Daniela Bobadilla as the daughter. Alex Wolff of Nick’s “Naked Brothers Band” makes a special appearance.
“We are thrilled to be working with George and Nickelodeon on this movie,” said Diane Nelson, president of Warner Premiere. “Families can count on Nickelodeon for fun, quality family fare, and it’s a great fit for ‘Mr. Troop Mom.’”


  1. To quote David Spade’s Hollywood Minute (SNL): “I liked it better when it was called ‘Troop Beverly Hills’.” Shelly Long should be rolling in her grave!!!

  2. Stupid is usually as stupid does…this whole thing really is a joke. Lindsay Lohan goes on to do harmful drugs because lindsay will never “get it”…The whole court system is a joke. Why don’t you put this lady in some gaol in Cincinnati or some other place in Ohio where there is no overcrowding and there’s no silly program that continually lets these people get away with ****. At any rate if the woman will keep going to do harmful drugs she ought to be “shrewd” about it and never get busted…or else, go on with what you’re doing Lindsay and we will drop you into Afghanistan with the extraordinarily daring troops who’re losing their life every single day to provide you your foolish so-called “freedom”.

  3. Great wordpress blog here.. It’s hard to find quality writing like yours these days. I really appreciate people like you! take care and see you soon

  4. You make blogging look like a walk in the park! I’ve been trying to blog daily but I just cant find writing material.. you’re an inspiration to me and i’m sure many others!

  5. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  6. I really like the colors here on your blog. did you design this yourself or did you outsource it to a professional?
