Latina movie superstar Jennifer Lopez is going back to her roots.

J.LO and her manager Benny Medina have signed a partnership deal with American Spanish language TV network TELEMUNDO and plan to make a series of shows in Spanish.

Speaking at the unveiling of the new partnership, Lopez says, "I wanted to get involved in making shows for Telemundo because I am committed to creating quality shows for our culture.

"I see this opportunity as a way to connect to the Spanish-speaking audience in a different and more profound way than I've been able to do in the past.

"I want to tell the stories of Latinos who grow up here and live the American Dream."
