DESCRIPTION: (from FX's press release, January 2014) The series premiere of FX's newest 10/90 model comedy, Saint George, has been set for Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. Saint George is a half-hour, multi-camera ensemble comedy that follows the chaotic life of "George Lopez," a recently divorced working class Mexican-American turned successful entrepreneur caught between two cultures. 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." Ultimately, Saint George is a celebration of a multi-generational family that humorously wrestles with cultural differences.
