The show is “about two women raising a ‘21st century,’ multiethnic mix of foster and biological kids,” according to Huffington Post.
Jake T. Austin, who plays a foster son to the lesbian couple, says the show is very current.
“It’s very timely and it’s something that’s needed, especially on a platform like ABC,” he told E! Online. “The thing is, it’s a family show and it’s relatable. It’s not targeting any demographic. We’re just trying to tell a story and to appeal to a mixed crowd.”
Reports speculate that Lopez won’t stay behind the scenes producing the entire time, but she won’t be on the show right away either.
The Fosters premiers June 3.
