Young & Hungry Spinoff: Ashley Tisdale to Star in New Freeform Comedy — Plus, Misfits Adaptation in the Works

Young & Hungry Spinoff

Freeform is hungry for more Logan Rawlings.

The network on Thursday announced that it’s developing a spinoff of Young & Hungry, which will follow Ashley Tisdale‘s spunky lesbian character as she sets out on a new, to-be-determined path. In addition to executive-producing Young & Hungry, Tisdale has also appeared in two episodes.

Of course, Tisdale’s spinoff is just one of many(!) new series in development at the network. Read on for a full rundown of everything else Freeform has in the pipe:

* Later Bitches, a half-hour comedic talk show described as “late-night talk meets Sex & the City.”

* The Deep, a supernatural drama set in the “mermaid-obsessed sea town of Bristol Cove; everyone’s lives will change when actual mermaids come ashore, causing sides to be taken, loyalties to be tested and a war between man and mermaid to begin.”

* Hunted, a drama from executive producer Mila Kunis which “centers on Valerie, who escapes prison to prove she did not murder her husband. While the police hunt for her and attempt to prove her family helped her escape, Valerie fights to exonerate herself – but is she really innocent?”

* Lore, a sci-fi drama about the “lone survivor of an ancient race of paranormal beings who is abducted and forced to put his extraordinary abilities to work for the government.” McG (Shadowhunters) will executive-produce.

* Misfits, a drama in which ” a group of twenty-somethings are exposed to a mysterious chemical, and subsequently develop peculiar superpowers,” adapted by Josh Schwartz (Chuck, Gossip Girl) from the hit British series.

* New People, a dramedy about a “middle class family who adopted identical twin boys at birth. One is all boy, one grew up trans.” It’s based on the book Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family.

* Nine Years Under, a drama about a “law school grad who blows off the bar exam to take a job at a funeral home after the sudden death of her mother.”

* Rising, a drama “set in a low-income Latino neighborhood … told through the eyes of an 18-year-old girl destined for greatness.” Selena Gomez, Mandy Teefey and Aaron Kaplan are attached as executive producers.

* Alone Together, a comedy in which “two misfits from different backgrounds try to make their way into the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles. Along the way, they find salvation in their male/female, strictly platonic friendship.” The potential series hails from The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

* Made in LA, a comedy “centering on two friends who join their different skill sets to become fashion entrepreneurs.” Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Mila Kunis are credited as executive producers.

* Paige One, an Elizabeth Banks-EP’d comedy about a “children’s book author who hates children. Her life is turned upside down when her brother shows up on her door with his two young daughters.”
