I know our girl Rosie Perez has got the lil’ booky book that too, will give us a looky-loo into the past life of our girl JLo and her Leo histrionics and all, but hopefully before the ink is dry, she does like most writers and I (a real writer) will do [however we word it/dress it up] when giving the bitter with the sweet, or “loosely based,” or “derivative inspired from actual/experienced, or even imagined events” when telling my stories [in the interest of partial, balanced, or full disclosure]: Bring sweetness where it may be sour but necessary, but too, give credit where it may be due.
Because although we may learn a few things we didn’t know about our girl JLo, the fact of the matter is: She gets that work and gets her grind ON-consistently-ever since that badonkadonk stepped up on the scene—JLo’s career has a giraffe-like life: Tall, and incapable of laying and sitting down.
Although Jennifer Lopez is currently judging American Idol right now, she’s got her work cut of for her (literally). And will soon be playing an undercover cop on NBC on a straight-to-series show called Shades of Blue.
The premise about [Lopez’ character] being a single mother (Harlee McCord) who finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself. In the series, she is a detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force–known for its conviction record, and too, is a close-knit unit of people who as well, pitches in to help the single mother raise her daughter.
“Whether it’s 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. 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.” said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke.
Thirteen episodes have been ordered of the show which is written by the writer of 3 Days to Kill’s Adi Hasak who executive produces with Jennifer Lopez and her American Idol colleague Ryan Seacrest (and along with Nina Wass, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, and Lopez’ long-time manager: Benny Medina).
Other Side of the Fame will keep you posted when the show premieres.
