Jennifer & Gregory Nava Team Up for “California”

Per Deadline, Jennifer Lopez and Gregory Nava are teaming up for a limited series on NBC. The series, California, is “a sprawling story interweaving historical characters and events, which follows a [fictional Latino] family across eight generations from the days of the California ranchos and missions right up to the present.”

Jennifer is set to executive produce alongside her producing partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, and Benny Medina, through her Nuyorican Productions. Gregory Nava will co-write and direct the series. Of course, Gregory Nava directed Jennifer in My Family, Selena and Bordertown, so they’ve known each other for many years.

Jennifer is also working on Shades of Blue with NBC this year. She will begin filming Shades after American Idol is done filming this season.
