ABC Family Orders Two New Pilot Shows, One Produced by Jennifer Lopez

ABC Family has ordered two new drama pilots, both with well-known producers. The Fosters (working title), from executive producer Jennifer Lopez, and Socio, from executive producer Gavin Polone.

Kate Juergens, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, ABC Family, says, “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.”

From executive producer Jennifer Lopez and created by Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, who will also serve as writers and executive producers, The Fosters is a one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Simon Fields and Greg Gugliotta will also serve as executive producers.

Socio is a one-hour drama centered on a charismatic 16-year-old alleged sociopath who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood, and who becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is murdered. The series will be executive-produced by Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, and Curb Your Enthusiasm). Adam Milch (Greek), who wrote the pilot, will also serve as co-executive producer.
