October 2nd, 2010 2:00pm EDT

Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez is preparing to dominate TV next year - the newly-crowned "American Idol" judge is also producing a new comedy series about life as a Latina nanny.

The "I'm Real" hitmaker got her start on the small screen, featuring in hit shows "In Living Color" and "Second Chances."

Fox network bosses revealed last month she was to make her TV return as a new panelist on "American Idol," next to Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler and returning judge Randy Jackson, when the new season of the show premieres in January.

But that's not all Lopez will be working on - she's helping to create a new series for the ABC network, about three branches of an extended Los Angeles family - as told through the eyes of their three Latina nannies.

The Puerto Rican star will co-executive produce the as-yet-untitled series through her company, Nuyorican Productions, reports Variety.

However, it is not yet known if Lopez will feature in the show. A premiere date for the new series has yet to be announced.
