ABC Family Guilt Beyond

ABC Family Orders to Series Mystery Soap Guilt, Supernatural Drama Beyond

Meet the new dramas joining ABC Family/soon-to-be Freeform‘s slate: the sexy soap Guilt and the supernatural-tinged Beyond, both of which have received series pickups.

Guilt follows a young American woman (played by The Syndicate‘s Daisy Head) in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate/best friend. As the investigation unfolds, viewers and even the girl’s own sister (Arrow‘s Katrina Law) will question whether she’s innocent or a sociopath. The mystery will weave through all levels of London society, from a posh but depraved sex club to the Royal family. Billy Zane (Titanic) co-stars as a cocky and cunning defense attorney.

Beyond, meanwhile, centers on a young man (Burkely Duffield) who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers he has supernatural abilities that entangle him in a dangerous conspiracy. Tim Kring (Heroes) is among the executive producers.

“These two shows are an exciting part of our evolution into Freeform,” Karey Burke, executive VP of programming and development, said in a statement. “Guilt is a sexy, sophisticated event series whose European location feels bigger than anything we have ever done. Beyond introduces our audience to a new hero and takes them into a complex supernatural universe with great suspense and deep emotion.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Is guilt inspired by Amanda Knox or am I jumping to conclusions?

  2. Steveo says:

    McAuliffe is no longer involved in BEYOND. Burkely Duffield (HOUSE OF ANUBIS) has replaced him.

    Tim Kring? That’s all I need to know. Hard pass.

      I am pretty iffy about Beyond and a lot of that is because of Kring. In fairness to the series though, he is not the creator/writer of the pilot.

    Watching a new abc family show is a lot like dating a bad boy. It’s fun for a while but you know it’s going to abruptly end in an unresolved mess.

    Chasing life gets canceled to make room for garbage
