    Default Jennifer Lopez to star in TV drama produced by Ryan Seacrest

    by Lacey Rose, Lesley Goldberg

    The Ryan Seacrest-produced drama, "Shades of Blue," will center on a single mother and dirty cop recruited to work undercover for the FBIs anti-corruption task force. Production will begin in 2015 for broadcast during the 2015-16 television season.

    NBC is making a big bet on Jennifer Lopez.

    The network has made a straight-to-series 13 episode order for the American Idol judge's star vehicle. The drama, Shades of Blue, will center on Harlee McCord (Lopez), a single mother and dirty cop 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 raise her daughter -- and finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself.

    Adi Hasak (3 Days to Kill) is attached as the project's writer and executive producer, alongside Lopez's Idol colleague Ryan Seacrest and his Ryan Seacrest Productions exec Nina Wass. Joining them as fellow EPs are Lopez, her Nuyorican exec Elaine Goldsmith Thomas and manager Benny Medina. Production is slated to begin in 2015 for broadcast during the 2015-16 season. Universal Television, Nuyorican Productions, RSP, EGTV and H's Films will produce.

    "Whether it's 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. "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. Ryan Seacrest is part of the NBCU family and doing his first scripted drama series with us makes perfect sense."

    Added Seacrest: "Nina Wass loved the script from the moment she read it. When Elaine, Adi and Benny approached us about working on it, we jumped at the chance to collaborate with such amazing partners. The script is so powerful and ambitious, we can't wait to see Jennifer take on this remarkable role. Bob Greenblatt and Jen Salke's enthusiasm and support has been incredible, and we look forward to working with everyone at NBC."

    Blue is the latest straight-to-series pickup this season as the networks are using larger commitments to help land projects in an increasingly competitive space. Already, NBC has four straight-to-series orders, including Emerald City, Mr. Robinson, Working the Engels and an untitled Ellie Kemper comedy from Tina Fey.

    I hope NBC factored in her massive body shimmer budget when they greenlighted this shitshow.

    It's a toss up which I have a harder time taking seriously...

    Anything Ryan Seacrest produced, or Jennifer Lopez starring.

    Omg! I hate Ryan. Every time I see him, all I can hear is,....release the kraken. I wish he would stop bringing society such trash, for our viewing pleasure.

    I read somewhere online that Ryan Seacrest and Ellen are morphing into one single being,...and they will end up eventually taking over the world.
