NBC is staying in the J.Lo business.
The network has ordered a second season of Shades of Blue, keeping Jennifer Lopez on TVs in all her gritty cop glory—well, as gritty as La Lopez gets. The series centers on Lopez's Harlee Santos, a crooked cop forced by the FBI to take down the rest of her crew—including Ray Liotta's Lt. Matt Wozniak—who are like family to her. Premiering on Jan. 7, the series averaged 11.2 million total viewers in L+3 ratings across its first three episodes.
"We want to thank Jennifer, who is the hardest working woman we know, for her incredible efforts as both the star and producer of this show, as well as well as our other amazing producers and cast for all their tireless work in creating one of the most compelling dramas on television today," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement. "We're so excited to find out where this story will lead and have them raise the stakes even higher in what we know will be a fantastic second season."
Shades of Blue also stars Drea de Matteo, Warren Kole, and Santino Fontana.
