Freeform Orders Comedy ‘Besties’

Multi-Camera Series Comes From the Creators of 'grown-ish'

In addition to spin-off “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” Freeform will introduce a new half-hour multi-camera sitcom next season called “Besties.” From co-creators Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard (“grown-ish”), “Besties” explores friendship, identity, race, and class as two lifelong best friends use each other to get through some of the toughest challenges that they will ever face – figuring out who they are and who they want to be.

Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard are executive producers; the series is produced by ABC Signature Studios. No casting has been announced at present.
