Jennifer Lopez, the executive producer of the upcoming ABC Family drama The Fosters, says her show is about love.

The Fosters stars Teri Polo (Meet the Parents) and Sherri Saum (Rescue Me) as a married lesbian couple who are coping with raising three children when a wayward teenage girl – a foster child – is added to the family.

In a videotaped interview with the AP, Lopez said that despite the show's “controversial” subjects it included some very “base themes that I've learned are the important things in life, which are family equals love.”

“At the end of the day, that there's no real normal. That there's no 'set thing' of what a family is in this moment in time in our lives.”

“You might not want to see two moms and a family but you might be living next door to two dads who adopted an African-American little girl and your kids are playing with them. So, you have to wake up and realize it's happening anyway and accept it. And be loving about it.”

“You know ... we're all different. And we have to accept each other for who we are.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
