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.

It may have appeared that memories of past loves made J.Lo become emotional during a recent performance, but the 42-year-old singer has clarified that thoughts of her family, not her men, made her tear up.
The singer graced the stage at a Connecticut event on Saturday, running through a set list that included old hits like "If You Had My Love" and new singles like "One Love" and "Until It Beats No More." As she performed "One Love," a Lopez doppelganger re-enacted moments from Lopez's prior relationships, including those with Cris Judd, Diddy, Ben Affleck, and of course her ex Marc Anthony.
"We wanted to do a section of the show that talked about love, and about questions that you have about love still," Lopez said of the act in an interview with "Extra" on Monday.

Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announced they're ending their seven-year marriage, everyone's retracing the couple's recent moves to look for clues.
There are some who think the split was foreshadowed on Lopez's latest album "Love?," and not just because of that question mark.
People magazine notes that the record's "Starting Over" refers to the singer's love interest as a "dog" and a "player," with other lyrics that reference "dreams falling apart at the seams." Lopez didn't actually write that song, though, but she did co-write another one: "One Love."

Is Jennifer Lopez voting herself off "American Idol" already?
The actress/singer is currently working on a music-competition reality series of her own, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show, called "Que Viva," would find Lopez and husband Marc Anthony traveling throughout Latin America to discover fresh, new talent.
"Que Viva," which will be produced by "Idol" creator Simon Fuller, has been in development for quite some time and is currently being shopped around to networks.
