Immaculate Conception? The New Plot Line for the CW's 'Jane the Virgin'

From the network that brought you “Dawson’s Creek,” “Felicity,” and “7th Heaven,” comes a new dramedy about family, relationships…and an accidental pregnancy.

Gina Rodriguez stars in the CW’s new series “Jane the Virgin.”

What’s the premise of the show? Rodriguez’s character, Jane, goes to the gynecologist for a routine pap smear, but actually gets artificially inseminated.

It’s a story line Rodriguez thinks is a little more realistic than she cares to admit.

“Listen I have a gynecologist appointment in two weeks, and …I’m going to need a play-by-play,” Rodriguez joked in an interview with Fusion’s Alicia Menendez.

But the series is about more than just an accidental pregnancy.

“I’m really proud of the generational dynamic which I think everybody…every culture is going to be able to relate to,” Rodriguez explained to Menendez.

Rodriguez opened up to Menendez about why she rejected a role for “Devious Maids,” why “Jane the Virgin” is not a pro-choice vs. pro-life commentary, and how she thinks choosing the right roles can make all the difference.

“Jane the Virgin” airs on the CW this October.
