Lopez has signed up to be an executive producer on an untitled ABC Family dramatic series about a lesbian couple (with numerous children already) who take in a wayward teenage girl. Jennifer is developing the hour-long show with Nuyorican Productions.
Lopez herself has played a lesbian, who develops a liking for men in the 2003 movie Gigli. She starred in the poorly-reviewed film with her real-life partner Ben Affleck.
Lopez’s producing partners on this project include Simon Fields and Greg Gugliotta who have worked on the TV movie Beautiful Girls, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
One of the adoptive mothers of the series is a police officer, while the other teaches private school. Together, they have one biological son and adopted teen twins, one a boy, the other a girl.
It’s not the first time Jennifer will executively produce a show. She’s also worked on an eight-episode aspirational series called Amigas Inc., launching this Autumn on cable network Tres.
The new work (she’s also going on tour) may mean she’s not returning to her judging spot on American Idol—a role seemingly always in jeopardy.
