Jennifer Lopez will expand her acting resume with a new recurring TV deal. The singer/actress landed the lead role in the upcoming TV drama, ‘Shades of Blue’, where she will play an undercover cop.
“Jennifer is an extraordinary talent and life force, and we're delighted to be in business with her… We're especially excited that Jennifer is returning to her acting roots… and we know that she will create this complicated character in a vivid way that will breathe new life into the cop show genre," states NBC’s Jennifer Salke.
The film, which will begin production in 2015, will focus around a single-mother detective who is recruited to work for the FBI.
Although Lopez began her TV career as a dancer for the sketch show ‘In Living Color’, she shifted her focus to the big screen.
Glad to see her back!
