Washington (ANI): Jennifer Lopez is turning her 2002 hit romantic comedy, Maid in Manhattan, into a TV series. The 39-year-old has joined forces with U.S. TV network ABC to produce a new series based on the film. Lopez will not star in the programme, but will serve as an executive producer overseeing the production and the script.
The show will mirror the plot of the big screen version, with a struggling maid working at a luxurious New York hotel, but it will feature an entirely different character. Writer Chad Hodge tells the Hollywood Reporter, "The show is a different maid in a different Manhattan." "She (Lopez) will be very integral in the pilot and series," Contactmusic quoted Hodge, as saying.
