RAY DIAZ JOINS CAST OF TV LAND’S “LOPEZ” AS SERIES REGULAR

New York, NY – January 20th, 2017 – TV Land has cast actor and social media celeb Ray Diaz ("East Los High," "Real Husbands of Hollywood") on the second season of "Lopez" starring comedian George Lopez, which returns to the network on Wednesday, March 29th at 10:30pm ET/PT. Diaz will make his debut in the first episode of the new season as Hector, a friend from Manolo's (Anthony "Citric" Campos) past, who becomes like a son to George and a little brother to Manolo and Maronzio (Maronzio Vance). With George's help, Hector tries to get on his feet and find something he's good at. The ladies love him, but that doesn't seem to get him very far.

 

After working all through season one to get a residency show in Vegas, season two of "Lopez" finds George frustrated with the tediousness of having to do the same show every night. Along with his manager Olly (Hayley Huntley) and his opening act Maronzio, George tries to move on to bigger and better things that will make him relevant again. This season will also see George exchange one-off dates for a steadier romantic relationship, and Manolo will go back to school to earn his degree.

 

"Lopez" is executive produced and written by George Lopez, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky ("Silicon Valley," "King of the Hill"). Michael Rotenberg ("It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia") of 3 Arts Entertainment also serves as executive producer.
