Jennifer Lopez is coming to TV.
But wait – isn’t she already? Ain’t she like, on American Idol.
Alright, allow me to correct: J. Lo will be taking a stab a scripted TV.
La Lopez is gonna star on a new FBI-centric drama that she is co-executive producing with Ryan Seacrest.
The offering is titled Shades of Blue and will debut a 13-episode first season during the 2015-’16 season. The actress will play a single mother and detective who is poached to work undercover for the bureau’s anti-corruption task force.
Moral and emotional conflicts will arise for her character when she discovers that some of her close brothers and sisters – the same people who have pitched in and helped raise her daughter – may be dirty.
Sounds interesting. But, c’mon…would the same issues bubble up if there character were a man?
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
Fingers crossed it goes well for Ms. Lopez.
