‘George Lopez’ creator sells script to ABC

Robert Borden tapped for single-cam comedy

The creator of “The George Lopez Show” is trying his luck again at ABC with the sale of a comedy script from ABC Studios.

Robert Borden, who also created the short-lived NBC series “Outsourced,” is set to write and exec produce an untitled single-camera laffer set about 100 years in the future about two families — the Sloppys and the Perfects.

In addition to creating “Lopez,” which ran for six seasons beginning in 2002, Borden has been an exec producer on “The Drew Carey Show” and written for series including “Roseanne” and “Anything but Love.”

In other script sale news, 20th Century Fox TV sold Fox a drama series centering on a working-class Hispanic lawyer from writers Marty Scott and Toni Kotite with Jennifer Kelly and Harvey Myman exec producing.

Borden is repped by UTA.
