Freeform Orders Spin-Off Pilot ‘Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists’

Sasha Pietese and Janel Parrish to Reprise Their Roles from Original Series

Freeform has ordered a new drama pilot, “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” from Warner Horizon Scripted Television, with “Pretty Little Liars” stars Sasha Pietese, currently a competitor on “Dancing with the Stars,” and Janel Parrish. The proposed new drama is based on the book series “The Perfectionists,” written by Sara Shepard, who also penned the No. 1 New York Times bestselling book series “Pretty Little Liars.”

The logline: Everything about the town of Beacon Heights seems perfect, from their top-tier college to their overachieving residents. But nothing in Beacon Heights is as it appears to be. The stress of needing to be perfect leads to the town’s first murder. Behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie and a needed alibi.

“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” is produced by Alloy Entertainment and Long Lake Media in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. I. Marlene King (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Famous in Love”) wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer with Leslie Morgenstein (“Pretty Little Liars,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Gina Girolamo (“The 100,” “The Originals”).

    An excuse to shove more money into the usual pockets..?

    The original never did well and audiences have shown they currently hate spinoffs and remakes…
