ABC Family is staying in the teen murder business.
Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King will executive-produce a new drama for the network, based on PLL author Sara Shepard’s latest young adult series The Perfectionists, our sister site Deadline is reporting.
The Perfectionists follows five teenage girls who plot the murder of a man who turns their lives upside down. The twist comes when their victim is killed, exactly as they intended, only they had nothing to do with his demise.
This marks the third of Shepard’s book series to be turned into TV shows for ABC Family, following PLL and the short-lived The Lying Game.
In addition to King, The Perfectionists will be executive-produced by Les Morgenstein and Cheryl Dolins.
