Jennifer Lopez Signs First-Look TV Deal with Universal
She may have bailed on Project Runway, but multi-hyphenate Jennifer Lopez is poised to add some new TV credits to her ever-growing resume.
Along with her company, Nuyorican Productions, the former Fly Girl has inked a two-year first-look deal with Universal Media Studios to exclusively develop a slate of TV projects for the NBC family, Variety reports.
Lopez, who once guested on NBC's Will & Grace, has already branched out into television producing, bringing series to the Disney Channel (Amigas), the defunct UPN (South Beach), the SAP-py Univision (Como ama una mujer) and MTV (Dancelife).
If or when any of her new projects hit the air, though, the singer-actress may find she's battling, well, herself. Nuyorican is currently developing a small-screen version of Lopez's 2002 rom-com Maid in Manhattan for ABC.
Are you looking forward to J.Lo-backed shows? Should she make her way back to the boob tube and star in one of them? Is this her way of making it up to NBC, the former, er, current (who knows now?) parent of Runway?
