The premise seems crazy — we know. Watch the trailer for new fall show “Jane the Virgin” and things will start to make sense.
When Jane Villanueva was a young girl, her grandmother, Alba, convinced her of two things: telenovelas are the highest form of entertainment, and women must protect their virginity at all costs.
Now age 23, Jane is a driven young woman with wonderful fiancé.
All of Jane’s meticulous life plans are turned upside down, however, when she is accidentally artificially inseminated. Will she continue with the pregnancy? How can she explain the situation to her fiancé and family? And what should she do about the wishes of the biological father, dreamy Rafael, and his scheming wife Petra?
Though she has always tried to be the good girl who does the right thing, Jane’s life has suddenly become as dramatic and complicated as the telenovelas she has always loved.
The series stars Gina Rodriguez (“Filly Brown,” “The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Jane and will make its premiere in October 2014 with the rest of the new fall shows.
