ABC Family will premiere the Jennifer
Lopez-produced lesbian drama The Fosters on Monday, June 3,
following the series finale of The Secret Life of the American
Teenager, the cable network announced this week.
The Fosters is an hour-long
drama which 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 (played by Teri Polo, Meet the Parents),
the other a private school teacher (Sherri M. Saum, Rescue Me).
Together they are raising a biological son and adopted teen twins of
Lopez, who developed the drama with
Peter Paige (Queer as Folk), will also appear as a guest star.
In announcing the pick-up last month,
ABC Family President Michael Riley said The Fosters “will bring the
same depth, heart, close relationships and authenticity that our
viewers have come to expect and will pair nicely with our already
established pop culture hits.”
ABC Family also released a trailer for
The Fosters. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
