Jennifer Lopez-starring "Monster-In-Law” to become comedy series

"Monster-In-Law" is heading to the small screen. The romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda will be adapted into a multi-camera comedy series written by "The Carrie Diaries" producer Amy B. Harris and "30 Rock" producer John Riggi.

As AceShowbiz reveals citing Deadline, the TV series will serve as a loose sequel to the movie. While the film explores the complex relationship between a woman and her soon-to-be mother-in-law, the TV series will revolve around a happy couple who faces the challenges of parenthood while the wife has to deal with the close bond between her husband and his mother.

Released in 2005, the original movie marked Fonda's first film in 15 years after "Stanley & Iris". Written by Anya Kockoff and directed by Robert Luketic, it earned over $154 million worldwide. Will Arnett and Michael Vartan were among the cast ensemble.
