JLo is the 5-0

Jennifer Lopez is set to star in a a new FBI Drama series for NBC, says Deadline.

JLo will executive produce “Shades of Blue”, which has received a 10-eoisode straight-to-series order, alongside her ‘American Idol’ co-star Ryan Seacrest.

The trade says :

Written by Adi Hasak (”From Paris with Love”), the project will begin working on scripts in June with an eye toward a 2015 production start and will be for the 2015-16 season, not the one that starts in September. Shades of Blue is a complex police series that centers on Harlee McCord (Lopez), a single mother and detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. Part of a close-knit unit known for its conviction record, Harlee has become compromised by her colleagues — all of NBC_logowhom also pitch in to help her raise her daughter — and finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself.

“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,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “We’re especially excited that Jennifer is returning to her acting roots from such great movies as Out of Sight, and we know that she will create this complicated character in a vivid way that will breathe new life into the cop show genre. Ryan Seacrest is part of the NBCU family and doing his first scripted drama series with us makes perfect sense.”

Lopez has appeared in such films as “Selena”, “Money Train”, “Out of Sight” and “Parker”.
