ABC Family Adopts Two More


Industry veterans Jennifer Lopez and Gavin Polone have been given the nod to produce two new hour-long drama pilots for ABC Family.

Lopez will serve as executive producer on "The Fosters", a drama created by Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, which focuses on the trials and tribulations of a multi-ethnic family of biological and foster children being raised by two moms.

Meanwhile, industry veteran Polone brings "Socio", another drama which focuses on a charismatic 16-year-old alleged sociopath who is the prime suspect in a fellow student's murder. Polone's past credits span film ("Zombieland", the upcoming Joseph Gordon-Levitt thriller "Premium Rush") and television (The CW's "Gilmore Girls", canceled ABC Family fashion drama "Jane By Design") alike. The "Dexter"-esque series will be co-executive produced and written by Adam Milch of MTV's "Greek".

Executive VP of original programming and development Kate Jeurgens told The Hollywood Reporter, "ABC Family continues to find and develop original programming that adds new dimension and depth to the storytelling we offer. Both these shows are headed by wonderful executive
producers who know the millennial space well and
know how to connect with audiences."

News on the greenlighting of these two new series comes along on the heels of the cable network renewing three current series, including "Switched at Birth" and "Baby Daddy". Will Jennifer Lopez' newest endeavor clash with the rest of the ABC Family block?
