The Master Cleanse received strong reviews on the tight writing, excellent performances and the nicely directed/produced film from various sources while it premiered at SXSW in March 2016.

Written and directed by Miller, The Master Cleanse centers on a heartbroken man who attends a spiritual retreat, only to discover that the course releases more than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences.

The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki headlines the film and also is a producer on The Master Cleanse.  Also starring in the film are Kyle Gallner, Angelica Houston, Anna Friel, and Oliver Platt.

The Master Cleanse was  filmed in the beautiful and panoramic British Columbia.

Lopez is an autobiographical comedy of the veteran standup comedian.  Lopez will play himself, his struggles between his two worlds and his often own crisis making.   The two worlds – his working-class Latino roots and the comfortable affluent celebrity life where he feels “too brown” introduce many problems for the character.

“I’m excited that TV Land realizes that my personal challenges, insecurities and inability to connect are all part of my charm,” Lopez said.

No further cast members have been named at this time, but the pilot script was written by Silicon Valley’s co-creators and executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky who will write and executive produce the Lopez series.  Troy Miller and Michael Rotenberg of 3 Arts Entertainment are also executive producing the series.

Lopez is slated for at 2016 premiere.  Stay tuned for updates.
