Jennifer Lopez Lands New TV Role, Will She Quit American Idol?

Apparently the American Idol judges’ table just isn’t enough for Jennifer Lopez. According to NBC, the sexy siren has another TV gig lined up with a new cop drama called Shades of Blue. Does this mean we won’t be seeing J-Lo on the American Idol 2015 judges panel?

J-Lo’s new TV starring role could possibly be a red flag that she won’t be returning for American Idol season 14. NBC has already signed on for a 13 episode straight-to-series order of the show. Interestingly enough, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest will actually serve as the co-executive producer on Shades of Blue.

On the new series, Jennifer Lopez will play a “single mom and detective who works undercover for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force,” according to USA Today. NBC reports the character “becomes compromised by her colleagues — all of whom also pitch in to help her raise her daughter — and finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself.”

J-Lo has previously appeared in such movies as Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner, and Monster-in-Law. This will be her first starring role in a non-reality TV series. The new series is expected to start production sometime next year for the 2015-16 season.
