Jennifer Lopez is set to play an undercover cop on “Shades of Blue,” a new NBC drama that’s been given a straight-to-series order.

The “American Idol” judge will portray Harlee McCord, a single mother and detective who’s recruited to work for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force.

According to the network’s description of Lopez’s character, “she becomes compromised by her colleagues — all of whom also pitch in to help her raise her daughter — and finds herself faced with the moral dilemma of working against her cop brothers in order to redeem herself.”

“Shades of Blue” is being targeted for the 2015-16 season.

It’s been given a 13-episode order.
