Warner Home Video Brings the Hit Family Comedy George Lopez to DVD with the Release of George Lopez: the Complete First and Second Seasons April 17, 2007

Four-Disc Collector�s Set Features 28 Episodes and Never-Before-Seen Bonus Material

BURBANK, Calif. -- This spring, consumers will be able to own one of television�s funniest family comedies, George Lopez, on DVD when Warner Home Video (WHV) releases the show�s first and second seasons on April 17, 2007. The DVD�s release is timed to the show�s season finale on ABC and is titled George Lopez: The Complete First and Second Seasons. The four-disc collector�s set will include 28 episodes, as well as exclusive bonus material, and will retail for $39.98.

Since its debut on ABC in 2002, George Lopez has become a hit with television viewers. Consistently ranking as one of the top comedies on the network, it has become the #1 comedy overall with Hispanic audiences. Popular stand-up comedian George Lopez (Real Women Have Curves, Bread & Roses) made his television debut in this family comedy as George, an assembly line worker who brings a blue-collar outlook and laughs to a white-collar job when he�s promoted to manage a Los Angeles airplane parts factory.

At every turn of his life, George has been a guy who has made lemonade from lemons. At work, George�s affable and loyal friend and leader, Ernie (Valente Rodriguez, Erin Brockovich) and former compadres on the floor consider him a buddy, but that does not stop them from continuing to rib him and have their fun with his new found position of power.

Presenting a constant challenge both at work and at home is George�s tough and acerbic but loving mother, Benny (Belita Moreno, Melrose Place), with whom he tries to maintain a civil relationship. Fortunately, George�s devoted wife, Angie (Constance Marie, For Your Love, Early Edition), possesses the patience of a saint and copes surprisingly well with Benny�s questionable behavior and insensitive wisecracks, and with George�s freewheeling approach to parenthood. George and Angie�s son, Max (Luis Armand Garcia, A Day Without a Mexican), is dyslexic and a sarcastic ball of energy, while their teenage daughter, Carmen (Masiela Lusha, Clifford�s Puppy Days), struggles against her parents to assert her own independence while dealing with self esteem problems and the tribulations of being a teenage high school girl.

Aside from showcasing 28 episodes, the DVD will also include two hilarious bonus features:

Inside the Mind of George Lopez

Gag reel

�George Lopez is a funny, heartwarming show that is rich with colorful characters and entertaining story lines. It�s not just about a Latino family but about a typical family dealing with life�s struggles with humor and heart -- it�s material we can all relate to,� commented Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, �With the show�s success and broad appeal on TV, and George Lopez� enormous popularity, we think this DVD will have strong appeal to consumers.�
