Freeform just keeps getting better. On Thursday the network released the summer premier dates to their regular scheduled programming along with a slew of new projects.
On Friday Deadline released the news that the network will be picking up the series Famous in Love staring Bella Thorne. The show was originally ordered to pilot back in October when the network was still known as ABC Family.
Written by Serle and I. Marlene King, executive producer/co-showrunner of Freeform’s flagship drama series Pretty Little Liars, Famous In Love centers on Paige (Thorne), an ordinary college student who gets her big break after auditioning for the starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster.
The show will be based on the romantic novel by Rebecca Serle. Actress-singer-dancer Thorne, who has TV history with Disney having starred on the Disney Channel series Shake It Up, is a fan of Serle’s book, calling it “a must-read for anyone curious about life and love behind the scenes”
