Tag: Jane the Virgin (1-10 of 12)
Puerto Rican actress Gina Rodriguez made headlines this summer when she spontaneously gave a speech at the Television Critics Association summer press tour about her desire to overturn Hispanic stereotypes on TV. (Read her powerful speech here.) As the titular character on CW’s Jane The Virgin, Rodriguez isn’t a sex kitten or a cook—instead, she plays a college student whose life is turned upside down when she finds out she’s been accidentally artificially inseminated.
The dramedy—based on a popular Venezuelan telenovela—was recently given a full season order and Rodriguez, 30, has become one of the fall’s breakout stars. Here, she reveals why she decided to become an actress and why she refuses to conform to narrow stereotypes about beauty and race. READ FULL STORY

In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Sunday night game plan:
For the second year in a row, the Television Critics Association is betting on a superhero show. The TCA named Fox’s Gotham, which focuses on the origin stories of Commissioner Gordon and Batman’s legendary foes, the “most promising” new show of the fall TV season. The CW’s Jane the Virgin and Showtime’s The Affair came in second and third in the TCA poll. Gotham was also deemed the most promising drama, followed by The Affair and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, starring Viola Davis. ABC’s Black-ish topped the list on the comedy side, beating out Jane and NBC’s A to Z.
Juanes will guest star on The CW comedy series Jane The Virgin, EW has learned.

The Flash is about to make his mark.
The CW debuted a new poster for the debut of The Flash, which stars Grant Gustin as scientist-turned-superhero Barry Allen, who is granted the power of super-speed after a freak accident. However, the Central City resident appears to be zipping through Arrow‘s Starling City in the poster, as evidenced by the Queen Consolidated building in the background and Big Belly Burger on the right—which are just a few of the Easter eggs. Can you spot them all?
“Accidentally artificially inseminated” sounds more like the hook of a Saturday Night Live sketch than the premise of an upcoming CW series. For doubters, the network has released an extended trailer for the upcoming dramedy Jane the Virgin, which tries to sell the show a little more strongly than simply saying, “trust us.”
Based on the popular Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, the U.S. version of Jane stars Gina Rodriguez (Filly Brown) as a hard-working, devout Latina who is kind of hoping her boyfriend proposes — though she’s a little worried he’ll get down on one knee so she’ll finally agree to do the deed. When a mix-up at the OB-GYN leads to that artificial insemination plot line, Jane must choose whether to keep the baby — and whether to let the handsome father into her life.
