“Jane the Virgin” is about to grace our television screens soon. However, the show’s title is being speculated by critics. During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, the show’s executive producer tackled some details about the show including its title. Read on for the details.

“ We knew it has edge to it. But the moment you see the show, you see it’s all about thoughtfulness and morality. It really is a show that, once you watch it, you recognize it’s very deep and broad appeals to all different people going through things in their own life,” said executive producer Ben Silverman, as published in TV Line. He also added that The CW President Mark Pedowitz has always supported their chosen title for their upcoming TV series. Click here to read more about “Jane the Virgin.”

Gina Rodriguez, who plays the role of Jane, said that she has been waiting for this character for years because of her desire to “liberate” Latina girls and to show them that they can be more than how the media see them. In fact, she was first offered a role in the show “Devious Maids” but passes it up because she finds it “limiting.”

“There are other stories that need to be told… the media is a venue and an avenue to educate and teach our next generation,” explained Rodriguez in Just Jared. Rodriguez gave another empowering speech which you can read here.

With such an inspiring team and cast members of “Jane the Virgin,” we have high hopes for this show. It is such a comforting thought to know that the show is not just about making their viewers laugh, as the show has been labeled as a cross between “Ugly Betty” and “Gilmore Girls,” but will also empower the youth and everyone else who’ll be tuning in.
