Jennifer Lopez is stepping into yet another career. According to the Hollywood Reporter, MTV has ordered a comedy series script from J. Lo.
The singer-producer’s Latina-focused program follows Lina Molina, a recent NYU grad facing grim economic prospects. Lina moves back home with her eccentric Mexican family in suburban Texas.
Writer Grace Parra (“Work It,” “Jonas”) will pen the half-hour comedy, which comes from Lopez’s television production company, Nuyorican Productions. The “American Idol” judge has previously produced MTV series “DanceLife” as well as a mini-series broadcast on Univisión.
She's also got a reality talent competition series called "Q'Viva" in the works, which is expected to bow in the States next year on Univisión.
