Jennifer Lopez to Star in NBC Drama Series


She’s conquered film, music, fashion and reality TV, but Jennifer Lopez is ready to take on another serious role. The quadruple threat is slated to star in Shades of Blue–a cop drama that was just picked up by NBC for the 2015-2016 season.

Lopez will play Harlee McCord, a single mom police officer who joins the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. The catch?–she happens to be a corrupt police officer.

Shades of Blue will be co-produced by Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions, her manager Benny Medina and Ryan Seacrest’s Seacrest Productions.

“Whether its producing, acting, singing or any of her other many entrepreneurial activities, Jennifer is an extraordinary talent and life force, and we’re delighted to be in business with her and Adi Hasak on this sophisticated show,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement.
