Jennifer Lopez is headed to scripted television! The American Idol judge has been tapped to star in a brand new cop drama from NBC.
Shades of Blue has been given a straight-to-series order, to include 13 episodes, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show will star Lopez as “Harlee McCord,” a detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. Oh, and she also happens to be a single mother.
Ryan Seacrest will executive produce the series [...].
Of course Seacrest is going to produce. He and JLO are SO BFF. And Seacrest will never turn down the opportunity to make more of that sweet TV money.
Can we be real though? Does this show sound even vaguely interesting? To be it sounds like it’s all been done before and I don’t know if NBC can handle Lopez’s ego.
