The Disney-owned network Freeform has ordered a first season of a new comedy titled Single Drunk Female. According to Deadline, Simone Finch (writer, The Conners) wrote the pilot for the series which has just received a 10-episode order.
The series order comes only a few months after the pilot for the series was ordered. According to Deadline, Single Drunk Female is set to follow Samantha Fink, played by Sofia Black-D’Elia (Your Honor), an alcoholic who is forced to move home with her helicopter-parent mother in order to avoid legal punishment and sober up. When her lifelong best friend tells her surprising news, Samantha has to accept that she’s far beyond a hungover party girl, and is becoming an absolute train wreck.
Love a title that gets right to the point
