Jennifer Lopez, 44, is set to produce and star in new cop drama "Shades of Blue" with fellow "Idol" mate and producer Ryan Seacrest next year. It was announced Friday night (Feb. 21) by NBC that the 13 episode series will began production in early 2015 for the 2015-2016 TV season.

The TV drama will follow character Harlee Mccord (Lopez), a single mom and dirty cop who is recruited by the FBI's anti-corruption task force. As described by NBC:

she 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."

Currently J.Lo has returned as a judge on the musical reality TV show American Idol for this season and the "Selena" actress has been slightly distant from the big screen and small screen since giving birth to twins in 2008. This will be "Jenny From The Block's" first TV acting role and Seacrest's first step into producing scripted drama TV.

Fans have been anxiously waiting for a musical or acting comeback from the Bronx native and she has done just that with this exciting new cop drama. NBC Entertainment director Jennifer Salke made a statement about Lopez:

We know that she will create this complicated character in a vivid way that will breathe new life into the cop show genre."
