In the interview, she also revealed how the relationship they'd shared played a significant role in her decision to sign on as the executive producer of the A.B.C. drama. Lopez stated:
"I had an aunt who was gay, and I lived with her, and I loved her. She just passed away from cancer, and I thought of her often when I was thinking of taking on this project and the prejudices that she faced."
"The Fosters" aired on A.B.C. family from June 3, 2013, until June 6, 2018.
