Jennifer Lopez Plans Return To TV

Actress/singer to star in NBC special, produce sitcom about her early years in the Bronx.

Jennifer Lopez is set to return to the small screen, starring in a TV special this fall and producing a sitcom based on her life growing up in the Bronx.

Returning to the medium where she got her start — as a "Flygirl" dancer on the comedy series "In Living Color" — Lopez will showcase material from her latest album, J. Lo, in a one-hour NBC special, according to Reuters.

The sitcom, which has yet to be titled, will draw material from Lopez's youth, the news service said. While she won't star in the series, Lopez will serve as the executive producer.

Lopez stars in the motion picture "Angel Eyes," a big screen romance set for release Friday.
