The peacock network has given a straight-to-series order to Shades of Blue. The drama will star Jennifer Lopez and will be executive produced by Lopez and American Idol co-star Ryan Seacrest. NBC has ordered 13 epsidoes.
Adi Hasak will reportedly start working on scripts in June and producuction isn’t expecvted to get underway until 2015. The plan is to include the show as part of the 2015-16 season.
A cop drama, Shades of Blue will revolve around a single mother and police detective (Lopez) who’s recruited to work undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force. Her colleagues have become like family, helping her take care of her daughter, so she’s faced with a moral dilemma when she has to spy on her fellow cops.
“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. Ryan Seacrest is part of the NBCU family and doing his first scripted drama series with us makes perfect sense.”
What do you think? Does this sound like a good series? Do you think Lopez can carry a show?
this show was fantastic kept me on the edge of my seat could not wait for each week episode. Jennifer is phenomenal
The show is fantastic, just discovered it 3 weeks ago and saw all 13 episodes!
Jennifer is a fantastic actress and Ray Liotta is amazing as well! The pacing is great and the intrigue keeps you on the edge of your seat. The final episode when Jennifer kills her ex and looks at the camera is one we’ll remember
The show is great and I can’t wait for the new episodes. I believe Jennifer Lopez did a great job and I believe she can do whole lot more with this show.
I watched the whole series and the ending was the best. When Jennifer killed her ex and then looked into the camera that was the best. I loved it.
Jennifer has the acting chops needed and the rest of the cast.Lopez has never gotten the credit she deserves.The cast and story line makes this series believable .My hubby and I hope this series returns in the fall,If we see another reality show it will be to soon. Sincerely, retired police officers
great acting well cast hope it comes back in the fall****
Jennifer is an all rounder, any thing she does will have an excellent rating from me. She is the best of the best
This show sucks big time. All the cops are crooked. AND RAY IS GAY, not that he’s gay but that kind of stuff should not be seen on prime T.V.!! Your going way to far! I know of a lot of people not going to watch it!! SHAME ON CBS!!!
None of the females in any TV series could knock out a fly let alone a six foot guy, but they do it all the time. Hope this one is more realistic. I have taught Kenpo for forty years and many articles published in Kung Fu magazines so I know what I’m saying. Kenpo techniques would make her look good–and real. I wouldn’t mind being her instructor via video. 🙂
As an actress always good in her movies. As a singer not my type of music. Hope she gets more acting in her career.
I like all her acting always.
I like Jennifer lopez………….so yes I am looking forward to watching this show 🙂 I have always liked her movies & I love her as a singer………..to me shes all around great 🙂 so I have high hopes for this show !!!
Though I think her singing is dreadful, I don’t mind Jennifer as an actress. I will watch at least a couple of episodes.
