Miss Lopez will be an executive producer for the hourlong project. Casting was not announced.

Her company, Nuyorican, is in development on other TV series, including “Taming Ben Taylor,” a romantic comedy starring the actress-singer, and “Sweet Little 15,” a Mexican girl’s coming-of-age story.

Miss Lopez, who recently exited “American Idol” as a judge, also is developing films through her company.

Bryan gets second chance on ‘Dancing With the Stars’

All of that practice in Las Vegas paid off for Sabrina Bryan.

The season five competitor from “Dancing With the Stars,” who performed onstage with the series’ live show in Las Vegas, was announced as the final addition to the series’ upcoming All-Stars season.

After a month of campaigning for fan votes alongside fellow alums Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley, the 27-year-old “Cheetah Girls” actress broke the news on Monday’s “Good Morning America.”

Miss Bryan, who danced with Mark Ballas the first time around, will be paired with Louis Van Amstel for All-Stars. (Mr. Ballas is returning with former partner Bristol Palin.)

Her elimination from the series in 2007 still ranks as one of the more shocking in its history. She was voted out in week six despite being largely favored to make it to the finale.

“Dancing With the Stars: All Stars” premieres Sept. 24 on ABC.

Utah TV station won’t air NBC’s ‘The New Normal’

The same Mormon-owned Utah station that refused to carry NBC’s “The Playboy Club” last season is giving a thumbs-down to the network’s new comedy “The New Normal.”

The CEO of KSL-TV’s parent company told the Salt Lake Tribune that “from time to time we may struggle with content” and that the dialogue may be “excessively rude.” The comedy from “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is about a gay couple relying on a surrogate to have a baby.

“For our brand, this program feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” said Jeff Simpson of Bonneville International Corp.

NBC issued this response: ” ‘The New Normal’ is a contemporary look at how families are defined today, portrayed through a comedic prism. We are confident that the show will find another home in the Salt Lake City market.”
