Big on the Small Screen: Jennifer Lopez, Hope Davis, Jay McInerney

Hamptonites are making moves and making news on television.

Executive producer Jennifer Lopez’s series The Fosters has returned for a second season on ABC Family. The show follows a mixed-race family led by a lesbian couple, played by Sherri Saum and Teri Polo, as they deal with foster kids, adoption, acceptance and other family issues. Lopez performed at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut last weekend. Among her fans was Dancing with the Stars pro Maskim Chmerkovskiy, whose attendance fueled speculation that the two are dating.

Sag Harbor’s Hope Davis has a new series on NBC debuting next season. Allegiance follows Alex O’Connor, played by Gavin Stenhouse, a young CIA analyst who learns that his parents are covert Russian spies about to carry out a terrorist operation that will devastate America. Davis plays Katya, Alex’s mother. The series also stars Revenge’s Margarita Levieva, who played the ill-fated faux-Amanda Clarke in the series’ first two seasons.

Water Mill author Jay McInerney is reportedly shopping around a TV show. American Wine Journeys would explore history through wine.
