ABC Family has officially announced today that it has ordered Amy Sherman-Palladino's ("Gilmore Girls") latest project "Bunheads" to series.
From the press release:
Kate Juergens, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, ABC Family said, "Amy and I had a great collaboration on 'Gilmore Girls,' which continues to find new fans here on ABC Family, and I look forward to this new partnership being just as successful. Her vision for 'Bunheads' aligns beautifully with our brand and is a wonderful addition to ABC Family's original programming slate. I know our Millennial audience is going to fall in love with Sutton Foster the same way Broadway has.”
Meanwhile, two other pilots that ABC Family had ordered recently, thriller "Intercept", which starred Danielle Panabaker and Austin Butler, and "Village People", which was to star Jennie Garth, are not moving forward.
