Jennifer Lopez's upcoming drama SOUTH BEACH has been hounded with problems, thanks to this year's (05) extremely active hurricane season.

The Miami, Florida-based series, which stars Vanessa L Williams, has shut down production three times since launching in August (05), because of threats posed by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.

Lopez serves as executive producer on the upcoming project, which revolves around a group of young Florida professionals.
