POLL: Jennifer Lopez Developing TV Comedy about Latina Nannies

Jennifer Lopez has been working her butt off lately! Sealing her deal with American Idol just last week for a reported $12 million, La Lopez is apparently simultaneously developing a new comedy for ABC through her Nuyorican production company (as per an agreement inked prior to her AI gig).

Lopez has partnered up with producer Simon Fields and "Friends" alum Alexa Junge to develop the hour long comedy about Latina nannies. The show will follow three different families who live in Los Angeles, and tell the story through the eyes of the nanny. The move makes sense as J.Lo had been in earlier talks with ABC about developing a TV series based on her hit romantic comedy Maid in Manhattan, but some are crying foul over what they see as a public embrace of stereotypes of Latinas by the pop star.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
