Shades Of Blue Trailer

Jennifer Lopez's Shades of Blue Trailer Is Here — and It Doesn't Look Half Bad

Admit it: When NBC released the poster for Jennifer Lopez‘s upcoming crime drama Shades of Blue, we all asked ourselves, “Isn’t it a little soon for a Mysteries of Laura reboot?”

But after seeing the series’ gritty trailer, originally released over the weekend on Lopez’s Facebook page, we’re asking ourselves a very different question: “Does this show look… kind of awesome?”

Based on the 2:45-minute trailer, we’re pretty much sold on the idea of Lopez as a bad-ass NYPD detective and single mother with her back against the wall — and occasionally against the mat of a boxing ring. (Bow chicka bow wow!)

While it might be strange to see this airing in conjunction with American Idol, which will certainly serve up a very different flavor of JLo, we’re ready and willing to double dip.

Hit PLAY on the trailer below, then drop a comment below: Will you check out Shades of Blue when it premieres Jan. 7 (10/9c)?
