Jennifer Lopez and hubby Marc Anthony have signed on for a new reality TV show with TLC, the actress-singer has confirmed.
Not only Jennifer Lopez is quick to shed the pounds of weight she gained during her pregnancy, but also she is quick to be back at work. The new mom has signed a deal for her, hubby Marc Anthony, and their twins to star in a so-called "docu-series" for cable channel TLC.
Made public their partnership Wednesday, April 23 at the Discovery Networks' upfront presentation in Manhattan, Lopez said "I think it'll be something very exciting." Besides starring in the show alongside her husband and kids, she will also serve as co-executive producer and co-creator of the unscripted new series.
The new TV series itself will follow Lopez as she juggles her career in the entertainment industry, including launching a new fragrance, with her new responsibilities as a first time mom. The series is currently in production. No air date has been revealed thus far.
"I am excited to be part of the TLC family," Lopez commented in a statement. "I'm looking forward to sharing this exciting journey together."
TLC President Angela Shapiro-Mathes, in the meantime, praised Lopez as "unbelievably passionate about life and will be an incredible role model for our audience" adding that "I'm thrilled to be partnering with her on a series that will take our audience into a fascinating world. It's a fun, emotional journey that will be inspirational and yet very relatable to today's women."
