J. Lo Developing Lesbian Drama for ABC Family
Lopez Will Guest Star in the Series About a Cop-and-Teacher Couple and Their Children
Jennifer Lopez is taking time out of her music and American Idol judging schedule to get back into the drama scene: Lopez will produce a new ABC Family drama series about a lesbian couple raising their three children.
