The Fosters

The Fosters Information

The Fosters is an upcoming American drama series which is set to air on ABC Family. Produced by Jennifer Lopez and her production company Nuyorican Productions, the series will tell the story of the Foster family, a bi-racial couple who raise biological and adoptive children together. It has received criticism from One Million Moms, a conservative anti-homosexual group.


The Fosters are a mixed race couple who are raising a biological son along with several other adoptive children. Lena is an altruistic school principal, who is determined to save children. She decides to take in Callie, a "troubled" teen with an abusive past whose ways will turn the family lives upside down. Stef is a tough yet kind police officer who isn't as eager to add to their family. Lena tries to introduce new children to the family, not always with Stef's knowledge.


In September 2012, Sherri Saum was announced to be starring as one of the lead-roles, Lena Foster. Teri Polo was cast to star as Stef Foster.


In July 2012, The Hollywood Reporter among other sources confirmed that Lopez and her production company, Nuyorican Productions, were developing a yet-to-be-titled hour-long drama project for ABC Family. Lopez serves as executive producer along with Simon Fields, Greg Gugliotta as well as co-creators/writers Peter Paige and Brad Bredeweg. In August, ABC Family ordered a pilot for The Fosters; a series which tells the story of a lesbian couple and their diverse family. The comedy-drama is about two women raising a "21st-century" multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological children. The conservative anti-homosexual group One Million Moms condemned Lopez and the show, encouraging audiences to boycott it. The group are against foster care and lesbian themes, stating: "While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together."
