Former Sunset Beach and One Life To Live actress Sherri Saum has landed the lead role of Lena in ABC Family's upcoming Jennifer Lopez pilot, The Fosters. The series revolves around a lesbian, mixed-race couple who are raising their adoptive children, alongside a biological son.
Teri Polo has signed on as Lena's partner Stef Foster, a tough-but-kind-hearted police officer. When Lena decides to raise troubled teen Callie, much to Stef's chagrin, the Fosters lives are forever changed.
Country singer LeAnn Rimes has sought treatment for anxiety and stress, People is reporting.

Soap grad Eddie Cibrian told the magazine:
"My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know," says Cibrian. "I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way."
