ABC finds room for J-Lo project

Exclu: The networks continue to make room for J.Lo, who’s behind a new dramatic comedy set up at ABC.

Jennifer Lopez, who officially landed the plum job as judge on “American Idol” last week, and producing partner Simon Fields have teamed with “Friends” alum Alexa Junge to develop the hourlong. Alphabet has given a script plus penalty order to the project.

Untitled show (known in some circles as “Nannyland”) centers on three branches of an extended Los Angeles family — as told through the eyes of their three Latina nannies. (Call it “Modern Family” meets Lopez’s “Maid in Manhattan.”)

Junge will serve as creator and showrunner and will exec produce with Lopez and her Nuyorican Prods. partner Simon Fields. Ann Blanchard is also an exec producer.

Sony Pictures TV is behind the show.

Untitled show pre-dates Lopez’s recent deal with Fox, which included both a feature film and TV component.
