George Lopez and Mayan Lopez’s NBC comedy pilot Lopez vs. Lopez has cast Laci Mosley and Kiran Deol in recurring roles and set Kelly Park to direct, Variety has learned exclusively.

The multi-cam pilot starring the Lopezes is described as a working-class family comedy about dysfunction, reconnection and all the pain and joy in between.

Unlike George Lopez the show, the Lopezes don’t play themselves. 

Mosley will play Brookie, Mayan’s co-worker and best friend who always knows what’s trending (and sometimes it’s her feet pics). Deol will play Dr. Pocha, the veterinarian who employs Mayan and Brookie and is better at saving pets than talking to people.

Mosley stars in Paramount+’s iCarly reboot as Harper, and she was a member of the Season 2 cast of HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show. Her other screen credits include Florida Girls on Pop, Single Parents on ABC, Better Call Saul on AMC and Insecure on HBO, and she is also well known for hosting the podcast Scam Goddess.
