The Rush Hour 2 beauty and her actor husband will executive produce Family For Sale, a comedy which centres upon the divorce of an affluent Hispanic couple.

"Having the chance of adapting the series for the US market is a dream come true!" Sanchez writes on Instagram.

The original show, Familia En Venta, debuted in Colombia last year (14) and features Sanchez in a starring role. The series was recently nominated for an International Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series.
