The 40 something year-old world-famous star and style icon — who sets tongues wagging when she walks on a red carpet is adding something new. She is returning to a regular tv role.
In a steamy new drama, the iconic Jennifer Lopez stars as sexy New York detective (and single mother) Harlee Santos, who fell in with a tight-knit group of dirty cops, taking bribes and protection money that she uses to provide the best life for her honest and talented daughter. When she’s trapped by the FBI, however, and forced to inform on her own “brothers,” she’ll have to walk the fine line between love, loyalty, honor and betrayal, and try to keep it together for her daughter’s future.
The cast also includes Ray Liotta, Warren Kole, Dayo Okeniyi, Drea de Matteo, Hampton Fluker, Vincent Laresca and Sarah Jeffery.
