Jennifer Lopez’s new sitcom with two lesbian moms will premiere this summer.

The Fosters, about a multi-ethnic family with foster and biological kids being raised by two moms, is being executive produced by the pop star.

‘ABC Family is synonymous with ground-breaking storytelling and iconic characters,’ Michael Riley, president of ABC Family, said in a statement.

‘[The Fosters] will bring the same depth, heart, close relationships that our viewers have come to expect and will pair nicely with our already established pop culture hits.’

The sitcom will star Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Jake T. Austin, Hayden Byerly, David Lambert, Danny Nucci, Cierra Ramirez and Maia Mitchell.

Anti-gay conservative group One Million Moms has already protested the project.

In a statement, they said: ‘Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin.

‘As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.’
