George Lopez as George Lopez

George Lopez stars as himself, George Lopez, a father who reconnected with his daughter, Mayan, after years apart. After struggling with finances, George moved in with Mayan, her long-term boyfriend and their son in Season 1, and made the decision to get sober at the end of the first season. He owns his own moving company, called Lop-E.Z. Movers.

Lopez is best known for leading sitcoms “George Lopez,” “Lopez” and  “Saint George” and starred in “The Underdoggs,” “Blue Beetle,” “Walking with Herb,” “No Man’s Land,” “The Tax Collector,” “El Chicano,” “Valentine’s Day,” “The Spy Next Door” and “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl,” among others.

Mayan Lopez stars as herself, Mayan Lopez, who welcomes her somewhat estranged father back into her life to live with herself, her boyfriend and their son. Mayan works as a veterinarian, and expressed concern over her father’s excessive drinking habits in Season 1, enough to prompt him to begin a journey of sobriety.

“Lopez vs Lopez” marks one of Lopez’s first major TV roles after appearing in two episodes of “George Lopez.” She can be seen in “Mr. Troop Mom,” “Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie,” the Lisa Ann Walter-led short “Jersey” and an installment of “TMI Hollywood.”
