Famous in Love will premiere April 18, 2017 at 9/8c on Freeform (formerly ABC Family), per Deadline Hollywood. The new series is about a young woman named Paige Townsen played by Bella Thorne. This college student’s life is transformed when she lands a huge role in a Hollywood hit film based off a popular book series (think Divergent, Hunger Games, or Twilight). The series itself is based on a novel by Rebecca Serle and explores Paige Townsen’s life as a now famous actress: dealing with the press, dodging paparazzi, and navigating the romantic tension between her and not one, but two of her co-stars.
Today Freeform put out another sneak peak to Episode 1: “The Hollywood Business.”
This sneak peek appears as the latest of several, one of which featuring Paige’s roommate and friend Cassandra, “Cassie,” played by Georgie Flores (previously Alisa Santiago on CSI).
Co-starring with Bella Thorne are Carter Jenkins (playing Rainer Devon) and Keith Powers (playing Jordan Wilder). Also among the potential love interests is Jesse Henderson who plays Paige’s best friend Jake, who quickly becomes jealous of all the time Paige begins spending with her co-stars. The pilot for this “young Hollywood” drama was written by Serle and I. Marlene King, who is also the writer for Pretty Little Liars on Freeform. However writers like Christopher Fife, Bill Brown, Tawnya Bhattacharya, and Ali Laventhol have also worked on future episodes, by the looks of their tweets.
