TV Land has ordered a second season of the George Lopez comedy series “Lopez,” the network announced on Friday.

Lopez stars as a fictionalized version of himself, in which he struggles with wanting to give back to the Latino community where he grew up, but also feeling as though he can never satisfy all the demands placed on him by both the celebrity world and his hometown.

“Lopez” is executive produced and written by John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky. Michael Rotenberg of 3 Arts Entertainment also served as executive producer alongside Troy Miller. Miller directed all episodes of season one and produced the show via Dakota Pictures.

On Thursday, TV Land ordered “Nobodies” from executive producers Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone to series. That series will star, be executive produced by and written by Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras.

It is inspired by Davidson, Dorf and Ramras, who in their real lives have watched as their friends from the Groundlings went on to star in blockbuster comedies and win Oscars while they toiled away in Hollywood. The trio will play themselves, desperately trying to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they’ve developed so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.

“Lopez” is currently in its first season on TV Land, airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m./9c. The finale airs on June 22.
