Jennifer Lopez gives new meaning to the term “triple-threat” with her ever-increasing resume of television and movie production credits. And it looks like there’s no stopping the 43-year-old, as it’s just been announced that one of her newest projects – a multi-ethnic character show about the ups and downs of family life – has been picked up by ABC Family.
According to Deadline.com, the hour-long drama will be executive produced by the chart-topping diva and one episode will be filmed as a pilot for the network. Co-producing the project alongside Lopez is Nuyorican Productions’ Simon Fields and Greg Gugliotta.
The family-friendly fare – titled “The Fosters” – will feature the eye-brow raising escapades of foster and biological children raised by a lesbian couple.
For Lopez, who has a pair of four-year-old twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony and played step-mother to his three children from previous relationships, the complicated narrative of raising children in a blended family will undoubtedly come from first-hand experience.
The announcement comes shortly after news emerged about a new big-screen project for the Bronx-bred star. She’s currently filming concert footage on her North American tour with Enrique Iglesias to be used for a 3D concert movie titled “Dance Again.”
