Jennifer Lopez Producing New Latina Comedy for MTV
11/02/2011 - 13:00 ||
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV has ordered a half-hour comedy developed by Boricua superstar Jennifer Lopez. The project will reportedly center on a recent New York University graduate named Lina Molina who is forced to return home to Texas and her eccentric Mexican family due to crappy job prospects and the failed economy.
The comedy will reportedly be written by Grace Parra (Work It) and executive produced by J.Lo’s Nuyorican Productions partner, Simon Fields. In addition, manager Benny Medina will also serve as co-executive producer to the project. J.Lo’s been so busy lately that we’re having a hard time keeping up!
In September, we reported that the 42-year-old Puerto Rican was teaming up with Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta to develop a dramedy about a Latino family for Fox. Also, Lopez has plans to launch a digital video series for teens, which will be titled Tiger Beat Entertainment and will include news about celebrities, film, music, and more. Then, of course, there’s Q’Viva: The Chosen, Lopez’s musical reality show with estranged husband, Marc Anthony. And, in January, you can see Lopez herself as a judge on American Idol.
How does J.Lo find the time for all this?
