We are thrilled to report that CCM Drama alumna Diana Maria Riva (BFA, ’91; MFA, ’95) returns to primetime television as a series regular in a new comedy starring George Lopez. The half-hour Saint George premieres at 9 p.m. ET tonight (Thursday, March 6) on the FX channel!
Riva plays Lopez’s “tough and sexy” boss, as described in FX press materials. Her character, Concepcion, is the assistant principal at a downtown Los Angeles school, where she supervises Lopez teaching an evening history class — his way to give back to the community.
Riva’s previous television credits include Castle, Everybody Loves Raymond, The West Wing, The X-Files, NYPD Blue, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Drew Carey Show, Ghost Whisperer, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, The Good Guys and City of Angels.
