Teri Polo and Sherri Saum says they are
proud of the upcoming series The Fosters.
In the ABC Family show, Polo (Meet
the Parents) and Saum (Rescue Me) play a married lesbian
couple who are coping with raising three children when a wayward
teenage girl is added to the family.
In an interview with lesbian glossy
Polo and Saum said they could identify with their characters.
“I think this is the closest to me
I've played in my life, as a mother, as someone who loves someone
else and has feelings for some else,” Polo said. “This is an
extraordinarily relevant show and it's a timely show and I'm
incredibly proud to be a part of something that means something.”
Saum added: “I don't think I've ever
been a part of such a collaborative, supportive, creative team of
people. We've all living our dreams. Especially for the creators of
our show, for getting something off the ground that's really close to
their hearts and just a dream come true all around.”
The hour-long drama from executive
producer Jennifer Lopez premieres Monday, June 3.
