NBC Orders Drama ‘Shades of Blue’ Starring Jennifer Lopez
NBC has greenlit drama Shades of Blue, which will star Jennifer Lopez as a dirty cop who goes undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption unit. Per the Hollywood Reporter, NBC opted to order the project straight to series, bypassing the pilot development process, as it did with The Michael J. Fox Show. The project is currently scheduled to begin production in 2015 for the 2015-16 season. The series will be executive produced by Ryan Seacrest. It is not yet known how many episodes will be produced or if Lopez will continue to serve as a judge on American Idol next season.
