ABC Family will debut on Monday night a new drama series, “The Fosters,” which is produced by Jennifer Lopez and tells the story of a lesbian bi-racial couple who raise biological and adoptive children together.
“It’s about a biracial, lesbian couple who have biological and adopted children, all living together as a family,” Lopez tells Entertainment Weekly, adding it “takes chances.”
“There’s something that every family can take out of this show and say, ‘That’s exactly what happens at my breakfast table,’ or, ‘I can’t believe she said that! That’s exactly how I say things to my son.’ It’s very relatable that way,” series star Sherri Saum has said.
Produced by actor and singer Lopez and her production company, Nuyorican Productions, the drama features Saum, known for her roles in “In Treatment” and “Sunset Beach,” as school principal Lena Foster, and Teri Polo — known for “Meet the Parents” and “The West Wing” — as police officer Stef Foster.
The blended family includes Stef’s biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon Foster (played by David Lambert), and the couple’s adopted twins, Mariana Foster (Cierra Ramirez) and Jesus Foster (Jake T. Austin).
Kate Juergens, executive vice president of programming for ABC Family, told Marketplace last week, “I hope we are making it accessible. I hope we are making it seem normal. I think it’s the job of this network to depict the idea of family in as wide a variety of ways as possible.” http://www.christianpost.com/news/abc…
