Jennifer Lopez's new TV drama The Fosters will make history on Monday evening when it becomes the first U.S. show to feature a same-sex wedding since the demise of America's Defense of Marriage Act.
Teri Polo and Sherri Saum, who play lesbian moms on the show, will exchange vows during the episode. Executive producer Peter Paige insists the nuptials storyline was written in June, before gay unions became legal—and the episode was going to air on Aug. 5, no matter what.
He tells TV Guide Magazine, "We knew the Supreme Court would likely make its decision before we shot. If they had ruled the other way we would have still gone ahead—only with an f--- you wedding! But because the court did rule the way it did, it was an even more resonant celebration."
Lopez is a producer on the show.
