Jennifer Lopez is developing a new TV series, "The Amigas Sweet 15 Club," while also is billed to mentor the X Factor finalists later this year.
It appears that Jennifer Lopez is getting quite busy these days. The multi-talented actress-singer is developing a new TV series while also being booked to mentor the "X Factor" finalists later this year.
The TV series, titled "The Amigas Sweet 15 Club," is based on an original idea by Jane Startz and being described as a half-hour comedy with dramatic undertones. Startz and Lopez will both executive produce the series and plan to develop the project into a series of young adult books, Latin music-inspired CDs and potentially other franchise properties targeting female tweens.
As of the plot, the series will follow the "Amigas" as they use their collective talents (one is a singer, one is a DJ, one is a graphic artist, etc.) to launch an after-school party-planning business aimed at helping Latina girls throw their dream Quinceanera (Sweet 15) bashes.
Each episode of the series would focus on a different girl and on how her family and cultural background play into planning the event. Lopez will be heavily involved in all producing aspects of the project, specifically music and casting.
In related news, Lopez has also been asked to mentor the "X Factor" finalists later this year. According to The Sun, Lopez, Celine Dion and Elton John have been approached to appear. Producers are also in final talks with Kylie Minogue.
