The new CW pilot Jane the Virgin has found its Jane.

EW has learned that Gina Rodriguez will play the title role in Jane the Virgin, which is adapted from the Venezuelan telenovela and is about a “hard-working, religious young Latina woman” who finds herself artificially inseminated … by accident.

The pilot will be written by Jennie Snyder Urman, who most recently wrote an episode of The CW’s Reign.
