Jennifer Lopez Developing Lesbian Themed Drama for ABC Family
Pop diva, actress and producer Jennifer Lopez is developing a lesbian-themed hour-long drama for ABC Family, the network that brought us a positive portrayal of a gay teen on Pretty Little Liars.
The thus far untitled series is about a lesbian couple, a cop and a private school teacher, whose world is upended when they take in a “wayward” teen girl and add her to their full house of one biological son and adopted teen twins (one a boy and one a girl), according to Deadline.
Star of movies including The Wedding Planner, Monster-In-Law and Out of Sight and a guest star on television shows including Will and Grace and How I Met Your Mother, Lopez intends to guest star on her series, according to Deadline.
Also attached to executive produce is Simon Fields (Lopez's partner at Nuyorican Productions), Greg Gugliotta (Beautiful Girl) and out actor, director and producer Peter Paige (Queer as Folk).
ABC Family is fastracking the series, according to Deadline. Maybe we can help speed the process with some casting suggestions! I'm fairly certain their both busy with projects but my pick fantasy pick would be Julie Benz as the cop and Kimberly Elise as the teacher.
