Pantelion Films and South Shore have announced an overall 
film and TV deal with actor, producer and comedian George Lopez.

Pantelion Films is in partnership between Lionsgate and
 Videocine, an affiliate of the Mexican media giant Grupo Televisa, while South 
Shore is a TV studio venture between Televisa's U.S. studio division, Televisa 
USA and Lionsgate.

The first Lopez TV projects for U.S. networks from South
 Shore include several comedies and an action drama in
 development with Stan Lee.

On the film side, principal photography is slated to begin 
in New Mexico in mid-October for Pantelion Films' English-language feature, "La
 Vida Robot," starring and produced by Lopez.

Lopez, who is represented by CAA/3 Arts, is also starring in
 "Saint George," from Lionsgate Television and Lionsgate's television
 distribution company, Debmar-Mercury. The half-hour sitcom is currently in
 production and will premiere on FX in early 2014.

"We're delighted to expand our relationship with George 
Lopez, a Latino icon and one of the leading comic actors in America," said 
Lionsgate Television Group chairman Kevin Beggs in a statement. "George is
 already starring in one of our 10+90 sitcoms for FX, and his impressive slate 
of projects reflects his versatile talents and the synergy between our film and
 TV operations at its best."
