Actress, singer, producer and entrepreneur JENNIFER LOPEZ (Holly) has sold over 60 million records worldwide and starred in multiple box office number ones, including "Monster-In-Law” and "The Wedding Planner.” In 2001, "The Wedding Planner” opened at the top of the box office, while her album, "J.Lo,” was number one on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The two simultaneous number one honors made Lopez the first woman to have a number one movie and album in the same week.

Lopez made her feature debut in the highly acclaimed "Mi Familia,” which garnered her an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her role as the young mother ‘Maria Sanchez.' Lopez earned widespread acclaim for her work in the title role of "Selena,” which brought her a Golden Globe® Award nomination. In 2002, Lopez was awarded ShoWest Female Star of the Year, and in 2006, Lopez received the Women in Film: Crystal Award. Additionally, the National Council of La Raza, the largest Latino advocacy group in the nation, named her Entertainer of the Year at the American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) Awards.

She has enjoyed successes in front of and behind the camera including feature films "El Cantante,” a drama about the life of salsa legend Hector Lavoe; and "Bordertown” opposite Antonio Banderas – both of which she produced.

In the non-scripted space, Nuyorican's Lopez-starring bilingual Latin-America talent-search show "Q Viva!” recently aired on Fox after breaking ratings records on Univision. The company's hit series "South Beach Tow” premiered its second season on February 15th on TruTV, and crime procedural "Big Easy Justice” began airing in April on Spike. Nuyorican is also in production on the pilot "Code Enforcers” for TruTV.

This fall will see the launch of TBE, an entertainment show and digital extension of the Tiger Beat brand platformed via the highly successful youth-skewing AOL/Cambio online community. Nuyorican is producing in conjunction with Believe Entertainment.

Later this year, Nuyorican will begin production on a big-budget adaptation of "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” for Walden Media and Fox, with Lopez starring in the title role. The company is also developing a remake of "Overboard” in conjunction with Sony Pictures, GK Films and Will Smith's Overbrook Pictures.
