Guess who's coming to Late night TV?

George Lopez and TBS Get Ready to Change the Late-Night Landscape With Groundbreaking New Talk Show Launching in November

The late-night landscape is about to shift when comedian and actor George Lopez headlines a new talk show for TBS. The program -- from 2.2 Productions, paraMedia Inc. and Telepictures Productions, in association with Warner Horizon Television -- will bring the excitement back to late night with an outdoor street-party atmosphere and a high-energy crowd. The fun will include visits from celebrity guests, live music and comedy acts and the benefit of George's own flair and personality. Lopez and Jim Paratore (The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Bonnie Hunt Show) serve as the executive producers for the not-yet-titled series, which will air on TBS Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning in November 2009.

"George Lopez is one of the most talented, popular and successful comedic performers today, and we are thrilled to partner with him and with TBS on a nightly talk-variety show," said Hilary Estey McLoughlin, president of Telepictures Productions. "He has an extraordinary ability to authentically connect with a diverse audience and will bring a really different point of view that will be a game-changer in late night."
