ABC Family has ordered two of its pilots to series, building up its drama catalog.
The two programs are Twisted and The Fosters. Both dramas will begin production this spring for the summer season. The exact number of episodes order of each is not known, but ABC Family normally orders eight to 12 episodes.
“ABC Family is synonymous with groundbreaking storytelling and iconic characters,” said Michael Riley, ABC Family president. “These new shows will bring the same depth, heart, close relationships and authenticity that our viewers have come to expect and will pair nicely with our already established pop culture hits.”
Twisted tells the tale of Danny Ryder (Avan Jorgia), a troubled man who recently reunited with his two best female friends from his childhood. He becomes the prime suspect when a student is found dead in her house. Why? Tune in.
The Fosters, which has Jennifer Lopez attached as an executive producer, is a one-hour drama that focuses on a multi-ethnic family of foster and biological kids that is raised by two mothers, who are played by Teri Polo and Sherri Saum.
The network will likely order more pilots to series soon. Offerings include Terminales, Phys Ed and Continuing Fred.
Either one of these new series sound like something you would watch?
