Jennifer Lopez was in Maspeth once again this afternoon for the filming of her new NBC series “Shades of Blue” due out this fall.

Lopez plays New York detective and single mother Harlee Santos, who is forced to report on her fellow crooked cops after she was busted by the FBI for accepting bribes.

Lopez and the “Shades of Blue” crew filmed interior and exterior scenes outside a home at 57-22 58th Ave. in Maspeth, one block off Grand Avenue.

The shoot included a scene in which Lopez’s on-screen partner comes to her rescue after she is found lying on the sidewalk outside the home. The pair then walks up the stoop and into the house. Crew members were busy setting up the scene and touching up Lopez’s makeup in between takes.

The series has been filming at various locations throughout Maspeth and Middle Village recently. Scenes with both Lopez and her co-star Ray Liotta were shot on location in Maspeth last week.

“Shades of Blue” is set to air on NBC in the fall. For air times, cast information and updates, click here.
