Newly-single Jennifer Lopez focusing on new legal drama

Jennifer Lopez is piling on the work following her latest love split by developing a new TV legal drama.

The superstar hit headlines on Wednesday (24Aug16) when it was revealed she had ended her on/off relationship with boyfriend Casper Smart after five years, and now it appears she will be throwing herself into her work as she adjusts to the single life.

JLo has landed a new deal with officials at network CBS to executive produce an as-yet-untitled legal drama via her Nuyorican Productions company, reports Variety.com.

The show was created by Royal Pains' writer/producer Michael Rauch, and follows identical twin brothers who have little in common, but team up to fight cases in the courtroom.

It's the latest new project added to Lopez's slate - she is working on a reality series, titled World of Dance, a historical drama retracing the steps of Latinos in California, and is set to produce and star in a TV movie about the rise and fall of Colombian cartel leader Griselda Blanco, in addition to her ongoing concert residency in Las Vegas.
