THE LOPEZ FAMILY IS GROWING AND BENNY MAY FACE HARD TIME,
ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF �GEORGE LOPEZ,� WED., JAN. 24, ON ABC
The hit family comedy �George Lopez� returns to Wednesdays for its sixth season on the ABC Television Network. Just as Carmen prepares to go off to college and George and Angie begins looking forward to being empty nesters, Angie discovers that the Lopez family could be growing. Meanwhile, George�s job is in jeopardy, Benny faces jail time for a crime from days gone by and Vic contemplates engagement to a much younger woman, in the season premiere broadcast -- �George�s Mom Faces Hard Tambien� -- airing WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET) on ABC.
George Lopez is a guy who has made lemonade from lemons at every turn. Since he became plant manager at an L.A. airplane parts factory, George has handled a complicated job, a strong but demanding marriage, two rebellious children, a mother, Benny (Belita Moreno, �Perfect Strangers�), who can�t keep track of her own lies about his childhood, and an adult niece with an enormous inheritance and absolutely no sense of boundaries � all with his sense of humor intact. His affable lifelong compadre, Ernie (Valente Rodriguez, �Erin Brokovich�), is always there to lend a hand and provide his share of comic relief. George�s devoted wife, Angie (Constance Marie), deals with her challenging long-term marriage, George�s freewheeling approach to parenthood, Benny�s insensitive wisecracks and the erratic behavior of her adult niece, Veronica (Aimee Garcia), along with some misguided advice from her father (Emiliano D�ez), with the patience of a saint. Fourteen-year-old Max (Luis Armand Garcia) maintains the sense of humor he inherited from his father, and while he constantly tests his parents� limits, he revels in the freedom he�s gained since his older sister left home to go to college.
