Maid in Manhattan Becomes Series

Jennifer Lopez’s 2002 romantic comedy “Maid in Manhattan” is being turned into a TV series for ABC according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The lead in the TV version will still be a young Latina from the Bronx working at a Manhattan hotel who tries to make it in the world. Unlike the film though, the series will focus mostly on her relationships with co-workers rather than her romance with a rising politician.

Lopez will executive produce the series which Chad Hodge will write the pilot for.
