Jacqueline Grace Lopez (East Los High) has been cast to star in The CW's Jane the Novela pilot, an anthology spinoff to Jane the Virgin, per Deadline.

Valentina Garza (Jane the Virgin) will pen the pilot of which will be directed by Brad Silberling (Reign, Dynasty, Charmed). The project hails from Gina Rodriguez, Jennie Snyder Urman, Ben Silverman, Joanna Klein, Emily Gipson, Jorge Granier, Gary Pearl, CBS Television Studios, Sutton Street Productions, I Can and I Will Productions and Propagate. The series is envisioned as a soapy, telenovela-inspired anthology in the vein of Jane the Virgin.

Jane the Novela's first installment of the potential anthology takes place at a Napa Valley Vineyard, where family secrets (and family members) don't stay buried for long. Each season of the anthology will be based on a different fictional novel that Jane Villanueva wrote and will be narrated by Jane (Gina Rodriguez) herself.

Jane the Novel centers on Estela (Lopez), an up and coming art curator who has spent years playing it safe and coloring within the lines. But a shocking secret changes everything and forces her to live a double life.

The series follows a driven, imaginative twenty-something Latina woman (Lopez) who is torn between her boyfriend, Luen, and Felix, a handsome, rich guy. Luen is head of security while Felix co-owns a winery much like Jane Villanueva's (Rodriguez) cop boyfriend Michael and rich love interest Rafael, co-owner of the Marbella hotel.
