George Lopez and comedian Mayan Lopez on NBC’s “Lopez vs. Lopez” starred Lacey Mosley and Kieran Deol in recurring roles and set Kelly Park to direct, Variety Learned Exclusive.
The multi-camera pilot starring Lopez is described as a working-class family comedy about dysfunction, reconnection, and all the pain and joy in between.
Mosley will play Brookie, a co-worker and Mayan’s best friend who always knows what the trend is (and sometimes pictures of her feet). Deol will play Dr. Pocha, a vet who hires Mayan and Brookie who is better at saving pets than talking to people.
Mosley stars in Paramount+’s “iCarly” as Harper, and was a cast member on the second season 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 known for hosting the “Scar Goddess” podcast. Mosley is represented by the CAA and Ginsburg Daniels Kallis.

Film-wise, she directed the documentary Woman Rebel and is currently writing and directing Tidal Turbulence, a feature film. Deol is also a stand-up comedian. It is represented by UTA.
