“We love this odd-couple comedy not just because it is a sophisticated, funny show but we are thrilled to tell a story about part of the American experience that isn’t really on TV today,” said Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president, Programming & Development.
The network previously ordered pilots for the single-camera comedy “Alone Together,” magazine drama “Issues” and mermaid thriller “The Deep.” The network’s current multi-camera lineup includes “Baby Daddy,” which was picked up for Season 6 in June, and “Young & Hungry,” which aired its Season 4 finale in August.
Freeform also has the single-camera comedy “Nicki,” based on the life of rapper Nicki Minaj, in the works. The comedy received a straight-to-series order from the network last year.
