ABC Family has green-lit a series pilot for the lesbian-themed comedy-drama The Fosters being developed by Jennifer Lopez and Peter Paige.

ABC Family announced its decision on Thursday.

Lopez and Paige will executive produce the series. Lopez will also appear on the show as a guest star.

The drama centers on a lesbian couple who are coping with raising three children when a wayward teenage girl moves in. One of the women is a police officer, the other a private school teacher. Together they are raising a biological son and adopted teen twins of opposite sexes.

Paige and Brad Bredeweg, the creators and writers of the show, will share executive producer credits with Simon Fields, Lopez's partner at Nuyorican Productions, and Greg Gugliotta, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Paige is best know for his role as Emmett Honeycutt on Showtime's groundbreaking gay drama Queer as Folk. His debut as director and writer was on the 2005 film Say Uncle.
