From the Castle Hill section of the Bronx, New York to conquering film, music, fashion, TV, winning Grammy Awards and even receiving the 2,500th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Now the original ‘Fly Girl‘ is adding a new TV gig to her ever-expanding resume.

The 44-year-old Latina actress will star in and produce her own television series for NBC. Lopez’s police drama series, Shades Of Blue was just picked up by NBC for the 2015-2016 season. The hour-long drama received a “13-episode straight-to-series” which is set to begin production in 2015 followed by a fall premiere that same year.

TVLine.com describes the show as “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 whom 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.”
Adi Hasak (From Paris with Love, 3 Days to Kill) will write the series and will serve as an EP alongside J Lo’s longtime manager Benny Medina and Ryan Seacrest.

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 in a statement.
