Pop TV has greenlit a half-hour scripted sitcom called “Florida Girls,” which will head into production this fall. “Florida Girls” follows a quartet of female friends who are partying under the poverty line while navigating very relatable problems as they try to better their situations. Living in a dilapidated beach town full of alcoholics, these street-wise women haphazardly attempt to find self-worth and learn to “adult” in a society that deems poor, uneducated women as valueless. Their backbone ultimately lies within their tight-knit, non-judgmental and loving friendship.
Lionsgate will produce “Florida Girls” alongside 3 Arts and JAX Media (“Broad City,” “Younger,” “Search Party”). Series creator and executive producer Laura Chinn (“The Mick”) will star in the 10-episode series, which is based on Laura Chinn’s real-life.
