Jennifer Lopez is set to star in NBC’s drama Shades of Blue, which has received a 13-episode order from the network.
Jennifer Lopez will play Harlee McCord, 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 McCord 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.
The series will be written by Adi Hasak, who executive produces with Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina. Shades of Blue production is planned to begin in 2015 and the series will air in the 2015-16 season.
