Jennifer Lopez will appear on screen in new drama series The Fosters, for which she is also the producer.

The show will focus on the lives of a lesbian couple and their family.

Jake Austin, who plays the foster son of Lena and Stef Foster in the series, said Lopez intends to appear in a cameo role during an episode of the show.

As E! Online reports, he said: ‘She was maybe thinking about doing a cameo in the pilot…but there was some apprehension in deciding how early they wanted to feature someone like her into the show.

‘So she’ll definitely come on…but at this point we just don’t know when.’

In recent years, Lopez has established herself as a dedicated supporter of gay rights.

Asked about her stance on gay marriage by The Advocate in May 2010, she said: ‘When it comes to gay marriage, I just believe in love.

‘I believe that when two people find each other and love each other, they should be able to spend their lives together.’

Last week, a new promo for the series was released. Check it out here.

The Fosters is set to premiere on ABC Family in the US on June 3rd.
