Jennifer Lopez Heads To TV

The programming suits at ABC are certainly keeping busy.

Just a day after announcing a series version of "The Witches of Eastwick," ABC is now in talks to bring the Jennifer Lopez movie, "Maid in Manhattan," to the small screen.

Lopez wouldn't star in the series, but would be one of its executive producers, according to trade reports.

The hour-long series won't be an exact duplicate of its big-screen cousin. It will still feature a Latina maid working in a ritzy Manhattan hotel, but will focus more on her family and friends.

ET has just confirmed that the Jennifer Lopez movie, 'Maid in Manhattan,' is being adapted for TV by the star for ABC. The series will be an hour-long dramedy that could be a match up with "Ugly Betty," as both shows feature Latina stars.

Lopez is no stranger to TV production. She produced the TV series "South Beach" for UPN and "DanceLife" on MTV.
