"SAINT GEORGE" PREMIERES MARCH 6 ON FX

The 10/90 Model Comedy Starring George Lopez Will Air Thursday Nights at 9pm ET/PT

LOS ANGELES, January 27, 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.

The series stars George Lopez (George Lopez, Lopez Tonight) as "George Lopez," Jenn Lyon (Justified) as "Mackenzie," Olga Merediz (In the Heights) as "Alma," Diana Maria Riva (The Bridge) as "Concepcion," and Kaden Gibson (Review With Forrest MacNeil) as "Harper, with David Zayas (Dexter) as "Junior" and Danny Trejo (Machete Kills) as "Tio."

Matt Williams and his Wind Dancer Films partner David McFadzean, co-created Saint George with Lopez, and the trio serve as executive producers. Michael Rotenberg (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is executive producer. Dete Meserve and Judd Payne also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Wind Dancer Films, Travieso Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

FX ordered 10 episodes of Saint George as part of a unique syndication model crafted by Debmar-Mercury for multiple sitcoms. As is standard with the 10/90 model, if the series meets designated ratings thresholds over its first 10-episode run, the network will trigger an additional 90-episode order.
