She may be one of Hollywood's wealthiest women, but Jennifer Lopez hasn't forgotten her pre-fame trials – and soon she'll give some exposure to others trying to make it.

Lopez has gotten the green light for Moves, an eight-episode reality show about the lives of six struggling dancers that she'll produce for MTV, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I started out as a dancer and I know what that world is," Lopez, 36, said in a statement. "These dancers have dedicated their lives to this, and honestly, the glory is not always there. It's something they do only out of love. It's a tough life, and I want to show that struggle."

In the early 1990s, Lopez, 36, was a "Fly Girl" on Fox's sketch-comedy series In Living Color.

For Moves, which is expected to begin airing in the later part of this year, Lopez helped audition and select the dancers and will make cameo appearances on the show.

She is executive producing the show with Simon Fields, a partner in her Nuyorican production company.
