Pop diva, actress and producer Jennifer Lopez is developing a lesbian-themed hour-long drama for ABC Family, the network that brought us a positive portrayal of a gay teen on Pretty Little Liars.
The thus far untitled series is about a lesbian couple, a cop and a private school teacher, whose world is upended when they take in a wayward teen girl and add her to their full house of one biological son and adopted teen twins (one a boy and one a girl), according to Deadline.
Star of movies including The Wedding Planner, Monster-In-Law and Out of Sight and a guest star on television shows including Will and Grace and How I Met Your Mother, Lopez intends to guest star on her series, according to Deadline.
Also attached to executive produce is Simon Fields (Lopez's partner at Nuyorican Productions), Greg Gugliotta (Beautiful Girl) and out actor, director and producer Peter Paige (Queer as Folk).
ABC Family is fastracking the series, according to Deadline. Maybe we can help speed the process with some casting suggestions! I'm fairly certain their both busy with projects but my pick fantasy pick would be Julie Benz as the cop and Kimberly Elise as the teacher.
Whoa, this has never been tried before.
No doubt it’ll be a smash.
Just so long as they are the hot lesbians. I don't want to see a single flannel shirt on the show.
I come for pictures!
I’ll have to tune in to that....not!
Sounds hideous regardless of their orientation.
Taco flavored kisses?
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS also featured a teen having a sexual relationship with her teacher (statutory rape).
Family channel? Riiiight.
Ditto. Great minds / twisted minds think alike!
The below is really making me long for the good old days. Do not like the sound of this show, “The New Normal”. Seems engineered to make minors accept new facts of life. Sigh.
“Family focused shows prominently featuring same-sex couples seem to be on the rise these days.
In addition to Modern Family on ABC, NBC has The New Normal set to premiere this fall. That comedy focuses on two gay men who enlist the help of a woman to serve as a surrogate for their child.
With the family element mentioned in the description, Lopez’ ABC Family project sounds like it could be a good fit for the cable network, especially when factoring the involvement of the teen, which may appeal to the channel’s frequently targeted younger audience.”
What’s so ‘Family’ about girl on girl?
If this is supposed to be the “new normal” I’ll take the asylum instead.
>>Whats so Family about girl on girl?<<
Right, and what is so family about 2 gay men hiring a surrogate to make them a child?(NBC “family” drama “The New Normal” airing for teens this fall). This is becoming macabre.
“If this is supposed to be the new normal Ill take the asylum instead.”
I’m with you.
People are always shocked to find out gays make up less than 5% of the population, instead of the 25-50% that popular culture has led them to believe.
No diesel dykes, no fatties, no flannel shirts and it might be halfway palatable for 10 minutes. Beyond that I'll be bored to tears by their "issues" which is what the show will be about. Probably the younger generations lap this mindless stuff up
Right, the “one in ten” was a deliberate lie, engineered by the PR people for LGBTQ. Some polls show them at 1-2 %.
J Ho gonna lose her street cred with this non-straight drama
Of course it is. Kind of like the way the 70s TV show "Maude" featured her having an abortion, in order to get folks to start accepting it. After that show, there were a lot of shows that had a character thinking about having an abortion. They didn't, for the most part, but having the 'choice' was always seen as being a 'good thing'.
Gallup polling recently showed that homosexuals are right around that 1-2% of the population but that on average people do indeed think they are at about 20%. It unfortunately shows how much people think what they see on the “magic box” represents reality. They trust the box over their own lying eyes. If people weren’t that trusting of their TV set, liberals wouldn’t have the incentive they do to maintain their iron grip of control on the mainstream media.
The gay agenda, aimed at undermining Christian values.. This time the missiles are being fired from Hollywood instead of the White House (Marxist President) or the schools (Socialist unions). They all have a common cause; Killing Christianity, the foundation of our Republic.
Another Hollyweirdo production.
So not there.
Methinks the ABC Family Channel is misnamed.
ABC Perversion Channel is more like it.
Didn’t she learn her lesson after “Gigli”?
You should check out “Secret Life of the American Teenager”. I was horrified. It is by the same people as 7th Heaven, which was excellent, so I figured it would be good, but it is just about kids having sex, getting pregnant, having more sex, and having gay sex.
“I’m fairly certain their both busy...”
Not only a sodomite enabler, but an idiot, too.
It needs to be smashed. Or as far as casting suggestions are concerned, I suggest it be cast into a garbage can.
She was ultra-hot in The Cell, should have stopped there and gone back to being a dancer for a comedy sketch show.
I was watching a Batman episode from 1966. In it there was a letter to Batman from a child who was praying to God that he gets the criminal on the loose (Joker). I thought wow—how odd that seems now that modern TV sitcoms avoids mentioning of God like the plague. Plus shows like Batman were good, clean fun and talented actors and skits too.
No time, boy wonder, to the bat cave!
You can’t turn on the tv these days without being assaulted with homosexual trash. Enough already. Fast track to hell in a handbasket.
Way back then Batman and Robin were rather discreet about their Bat Cave sexual encounters.
Dinner at the Y every episode.
In the UK there was a scientific study done on the number of homosexuals there. It was only 1.5%. I bet the number is pretty close to the same here in the uS.
ABC is still on the air? Huh, go figure. Yet another show I won’t be watching.
The homo population is like skimmed milk: less than 2%.
Men and women are fundamentally different, irregardless of whether woman identified women see this or not. It was even recognized in Leviticus when God prohibited sex exclusively between men. Of course it might be argued too that that injunction then had to make exception - but again for those males! - who might have enjoyed their wives dallying with each other in their communal wedding beds. But excepted it was, at least until Pauls much later interpretations of scripture in The New Testament.
I recently watched a video of the Gay Pride parade of 2011 in Northampton, MA. While over the top like most such events, it had essentially none of the many cases of sheer depravity that take place in marches such as in West Hollywood or San Francisco. Id like to think that maybe - just maybe - there was some reserve in Northampton because of the kids about for one, and then that that town boasts more lesbians per capita than anywhere else in the US, and that with lesbians so over represented, at least some aspect of womens reserve might make that difference.
But then Id end this personal and social fantasy -which it is - but to claim that as a male I too am a lesbian. Especially if American society is going to go insane and insist that every depravity is normal; that men are women and women are men, and that GLBTG can openly use womens bathrooms...well then, heck, Im a man, but nonetheless a lesbian. And I can prove it by having been near 37 years married to a tom-boy.
Return to sanity?
You may be surprised to know that here in Russia, many people believe that in the US, Blacks make up 50% of the population (vs 12-13% in reality). This misconception is brought on by the American media (television, films, music).
Twisted! how about beastiality! sounds like another smash hit. “mark and his dog” Pushing a minority life style on our children as popular and normal is just one more thing we as parents have to battle. Undertsanding these life styles exist is one thing presenting them as the new fad is another.
People who watch that are indeed “sick people”.
This channel has certainly declined a long way from the days when it was the Christian Broadcasting Network.
