It’s been a few months since Jennifer Lopez announced her exit from American Idol after a two-year stint. But prepare for the Latin beauty’s return to television – as a producer!
ABC Family announced Lopez signed on as executive producer for the new family drama, The Fosters, which begins filming soon. The show will capture the ups and downs of a lesbian couple raising a family of foster and biological children of different cultural backgrounds.
According to a report, the show’s creators, Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, have yet to reveal any casting details.
The ex Idol judge is working on several other TV-related projects as well. According to an additional report, Lopez is in the process of developing two television series, titled Taming Ben Taylor and Sweet Little 15, through her company Nuyorican.
Aside from the small screen, Lopez’s music career is taking the world by storm. She is currently on the road touring, with boyfriend and backup dancer Casper Smart, and her latest album LOVE? was an iTunes top seller.
The 43-year-old is estranged from husband Marc Anthony after a seven-year marriage. The couple, who filmed their dance show Q’Viva! post-split, has 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, together.
