Writer parks ‘MacArthur’ for Showtime

Show to revolve around the world of immigration law

“Real Women Have Curves” scribe Josefina Lopez will develop a project for Showtime set in Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park.

The one-hour comedy-drama, which has the working title “MacArthur Park,” will revolve around the world of immigration law and follow the lives of an ensemble cast of characters living in Los Angeles’ east side.

Lopez will serve as creator and writer on the project, which is in the script stage at Showtime.

Should “MacArthur Park” go to series, Willie Kutner and Marilyn Atlas will also serve as producers. Lopez, who’s repped by Shapiro-Lichtman, is also scripting “Loteria” for HBO.

“Real Women Have Curves” was based on a play of the same name by Lopez; the feature received the Special Jury Award for Acting and the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002.

As a playwright, Lopez’s credits include “Simply Maria, or the American Dream.”

Her other TV credits include “Living Single” and “The Brothers Garcia.”
