Sherri Saum & Teri Polo Cast As Lesbian Parents In THE FOSTERS

ABC Family has cast Teri Polo (LOVING; THE WEST WING) and Sherri Saum (SUNSET BEACH; ONE LIFE TO LIVE) to star in drama series pilot THE FOSTERS, which is currently in pre-production.

THE FOSTERS tells the story of Stef and Lena Foster, a mixed race couple who are raising a biological son, along with several adopted children. When Lena decides to take in Callie, a troubled teen with an abusive past, Callie’s disruptive ways threaten to turn the Fosters lives upside down.

Polo will portray Stef Foster, a tough but kind police officer who is not eager to add to their already large brood, but soon realizes her family may be Callie’s best hope for a better life. Saum will portray Lena Foster, an altruistic school principal, who is determined to save as many kids as she can and agrees to take in Callie without Stef’s knowledge.

Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige wrote the pilot, which is executive produced by Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions. In addition to Lopez, executive producers include Simon Fields, Bredeweg, Paige, and Greg Gugliotta.

  1. I wouldn't ordinarily come within 10 feet of anything Jennifer Lopez was involved with but I'll give 'The Fosters' a try.
