R&B singer Jennifer Lopez is developing a TV series about five Miami teens who run a Quinceanera party-planning business, reports Reuters. Billed as a half-hour comedy-drama, “The Amigas Sweet 15 Club,” is based on an original idea by Jane Startz, who produced the film and TV series based on the popular “The Baby-Sitters Club” books. Startz will executive produce with Lopez. In addition to the music-centric TV show, they plan to develop “Amigas” into a series of young adult books, Latin music-inspired CDs and potentially other franchise properties targeting female tweens. The TV series follows the “Amigas” as they use their collective talents (one is a singer, one is a DJ, one is a graphic artist, etc.) to launch an after-school party-planning business aimed at helping Latina girls throw their dream Quinceanera (Sweet 15) bashes. Each episode of the potential series would focus on a different girl and on how her family and cultural background play into planning the event. Lopez will be heavily involved in all producing aspects of the project, specifically music and casting, said Simon Fields, a principal at Lopez’ Nuyorican Prods.
