Jennifer Lopez To Headline FBI Drama For NBC

In the biggest casting news for television since Halle Berry in 'Extant', Jennifer Lopez has agreed to headline the 13-episode straight-to-series FBI drama 'Shades of Blue' for NBC.

The series, which she will produce with her 'American Idol' pal Ryan Seacrest for the 2015-2016 season, centers on Harlee McCord, a single mother and detective recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force.

Lopez (pictured at the American Idol Top 13 After-Party) had some brief stints and recurring roles on television prior to her film career taking off in the late 1990s, but this will mark a return to the format.

"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."
