It’s a busy week at ABC Family.
Following yesterday’s cancellation of The Nine Lives of Chloe King, the teen net announced today it has picked up four new series, one of which comes from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. The network also renewed gymnastics-centered drama Make It or Break It for a third season and ordered an additional 10 episodes of The Lying Game.
Sherman-Palladino’s project, titled Bunheads, is a one-hour drama that follows a Las Vegas showgirl who married a man and moves to a small coastal town to teach at his mother’s dance school. The other drama picked up, Intercept, is about a group of crime-solving college students and comes from The Crazies writer Ray Wright.
The network also picked up two comedy pilots, Baby Daddy (relatively self-explanatory) and Village People (surprisingly not self-explanatory). The latter centers on a career-minded single woman who adopts a baby from a teen mom (no, not one of these) and ends up caring for the young mother as well.
