I don't know how she does it, but Jennifer Lopez not only has a Las Vegas residency kicking off in January 2016, she's got a new NBC drama as well.
Lopez stars as in the new cop drama, Shades of Blue, alongside Ray Liotta and Drea de Matteo, which the network is billing as a "steamy new drama."
The trailer looks interesting, but I wouldn't describe it using the word "steamy." Gritty, yes. Steamy? I guess if you count subway grates What are they feeding those copywriters at 30 Rock?
As a "sexy" New York detective (she's also a single mom!), Harlee Santos (Lopez) runs with a bunch of dirty cops who take bribes and money to Lopez's character uses to "provide the best life for her honestt and talented daughter."
The FBI gets her and makes her become an informant on her tight-knit crew, and things look kinda scary-mary for Santos as she walks "the fine line between love, loyalty, honor and betrayal" while trying "to keep it together for her daughter's future."
I personally don't believe the words Jennifer + Acting go together, even though her movies are Saturday-afternoon-rotting-on-the-couch gold, but Lopez isn't that terrible in this trailer.
Shades of Blue premieres January 14th at 9/8 c.
