Jennifer Lopez Says Shonda Rhimes Made Television 'Interesting Again'

Jennifer Lopez and her co-star Ray Liotta arrive at the 2016 Winter TCA Tour to promote their new NBC show Shades of Blue on Wednesday (January 13) in Pasadena, Calif.

The 46-year-old superstar cited Shonda Rhimes’ work on Grey’s Anatomy as a milestone for diversity in television.

“That’s where TV got interesting again. I remember watching that and what was so interesting was where she placed different characters,” Jennifer said. “Since then it feels like the norm. There’s no getting away from it.”

Also pictured: Shades of Blue stars Hampton Fluker, Dayo Okeniyi, Drea de Matteo, Sarah Jeffery and Vincent Laresca posing for photos at the event.

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Victoria Beckham dress and Casadei pumps.

    This is JHO’s last medium to destroy. But first she got IDOL canceled. Her movies and music bomb horribly, so now she has turned to ‘acting’ in TV shows. She can’t act. It will be canceled by 3 shows.

    This show Shades of Blue is actually good!! JLo acting is really good along with the other cast.

    I think blaming jlo for idol is so unfair – she revived it with harry and keith – at least she is fun – and what is wrong with experimenting with different things – shades of blue is not too bad either – at least she is making things happen for herself rather than waiting for movie roles – there is a reason why she is successful and that is people do want to watch her so just hope she does well – she is fun to watch

  • JLover

    I am not that familiar with Shonda Rymes. I think the Sopranos made television interesting again and what do you know Drea de Matteo is also in Shades of Bue. Love Jennifer’s new show.

  • JLover

    She is conquering television. As a producer on ABC family’s hit show The Fosters, also as chief creative officer of NuvoTV, Idol has been very lucrative and successful for her. It has been on forever its not her fault its ending. And now she has her own series with Shades of Blue. It will get picked up for another season.

    I don’t think shes an amazing actress by any stretch but I have enjoyed some of her movies and would rather see her on tv acting than singing/dancing.

  • Mayra

    Looking good, Ray. Go Jennifer!

    Just don’t ‘T’ off, Shondra, Ask Patrick Dempsey. She’s a DIVA.
