Big news for executive producer Jennifer Lopez. Her new show - "The Fosters" - has been picked up by ABC Family.
"The Fosters," which was created by Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, who will also executive produce alongside Jennifer, stars Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Jake T. Austin, Hayden Byerly, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci and Cierra Ramirez.
A one-hour drama, the show focuses on a "multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms," ABC Family said in a release.
ABC Family also picked up "Twisted," from executive producer Gavin Polone.
"Twisted" centers "on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood," according to the network.
That project stars Avan Jogia, Maddie Hasson, Kylie Bunbury, Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards.
Production on both shows begins this spring. Both are expected to premiere this summer.
