Freeform has given a series order to the single-camera comedy “Single Drunk Female” starring Sofia Black-D’Elia. The logline: After a spectacularly embarrassing public breakdown, irreverent alcoholic Samantha Fink (Black-D’Elia) is forced to move back home with her “Smother” (Sheedy) to sober up and avoid jail time. But when her childhood BFF (Sasha Compère) reveals surprising news, Samantha starts to learn there is a fine line between party girl and walking disaster.
“Single Drunk Female” will also feature Rebecca Henderson, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard, and was written and created by Simone Finch (“The Connors”). Henderson will portray Olivia, a brilliant melancholic lesbian who works as one of The Greeters at AA. Harrington will play Felicia, Samantha’s fun and fearless drinking companion who is always counting down the days until Samantha is out of rehab so they can meet up at their favorite local bar. Bernard will portray James, an isolating, high-functioning drunk who works in the tech industry.
