Joanna Johnson has a full plate these days. The Bold and the Beautiful guest star is gaining raves reviews for the new ABC Family series The Fosters, which she’s co-executive producing (under the leadership of some chick named Jennifer Lopez). TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke with Johnson, where she revealed the risk she took with show and if she will be back on B&B.
TV Guide Magazine: Word is, you turned down another series hoping the pilot for The Fosters would get picked up. True?
Johnson: Peter and Brad made a beautiful pilot, which I had nothing to do with. I met with them after it had been filmed and got very excited, even though I had an offer to do another show that was all set to shoot. Since The Fosters hadn't yet received a pickup from ABC Family, my agents said, "You gotta take the sure thing." In this business, you don't say no to work, but I really wanted to do The Fosters. It was so worth taking the risk. I couldn't stand the idea that it would get picked up and I'd be working on some other show, playing it safe. I would have kicked myself forever. This show can achieve so much! It's a great opportunity to raise awareness and inspire people to open up their hearts and get into the foster-care program. READ MORE

Jennifer Lopez is looking at real life to inspire her latest project. The entertainment mogul recently chatted with ABC News about her “non-traditional family” and her new ABC Family soap The Fosters.
Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony share 5-year-old twins Emme and Max. The twins also have three siblings from their father’s previous relationships. Post divorce, Lopez has been dating her backup dancer and choreographer, Casper Smart. It's no wonder she wanted to serve as executive producer for a series about a multi-ethnic couple raising a mix of biological and adopted children!
So putting a show like this one to me is, look, there is no perfect [of] what family is supposed to be. It’s about love and that’s what I constantly remind myself of because I kind of let society get inside my head, ‘Oh, it shouldn’t be like this. I did this, I did that. I failed.’ And it’s like, no. [My kids are] happy, they’re healthy, they’re loved more than anything in the world and they’re going to be fine. I want them to know that. READ MORE
