Jennifer Lopez is probably making more headlines for her celebrity status than anything else in recent years. The dancer/singer/actor has also developed a strong presence on television, however, having served as one of the judges on American Idol for the last couple of seasons. It appears she's looking to branch out on the small screen by developing a scripted series for ABC Family.

Baby Daddy Preview: Trailer For ABC Family's Upcoming New Comedy image
When ABC Family first announced their upcoming comedy series Baby Daddy, I thought it sounded like a multi-camera comedy version of Fox's Raising Hope, however based on the new trailer for the series, Three Men and a Baby seems like it might be a more fair comparison to make.

Make It Or Break It Won't Return After Season Three image
It probably won’t come as much of a surprise, but still a disappointment to fans of Make It or Break It, but the word is now official that the series will come to an end after the current season. The current third season is a short run of only eight episodes, and that will be the end of the line; in factm they were lucky to get those episodes at all.

High School Musical's Kenny Ortega To Direct An Episode Of ABC Family's Bunheads image
I still don’t love the title of ABC Family’s upcoming new dance-focused drama series Bunheads, but the recently released teaser does raise my hopes somewhat that this will be a fun show for the summer. The drama follows a Vegas showgirl who marries and moves to a town where she gets a job teaching dance at her mother-in-laws dance school. The series already has a good premise going for it, and now it looks like it’ll benefit from the dance and directing expertise of Kenny Ortega.

The good news is, this time around ABC Family doesn’t plan to blaspheme Macauley Culkin’s original performance by using some other cute kid to play Kevin McCallister. This time around, they’ve scrapped Kevin entirely and will instead rely on Finn, an eight year-old character played by Christian Martin.

ABC Family Secures Syndication Rights For The Middle image
By comparison to Modern Family, which is arguably one of, if not the best family-centric comedy on television, The Middle seems a bit under-praised. The single-camera comedy is not only regularly funny, but also captures the humor in the life of a completely average family.

Add Bunheads to the list of new series getting the go ahead from ABC Family. The drama pilot with a name that makes absolutely no sense until you read what the story is about has been given a series order.
