ABC Family Steps Up to the Slate
Not content with just having the most successful year in its history, teen titan ABC Family has unveiled a peek at some of its new original programming and we'd be pretty little lairs if we said some of it doesn't already have us hooked.
On the reality front, the netlet has ordered the docuseries Beverly Hills Nannies (from the Real Housewives brain trust) about a posse of 90210-based baby sitters that sounds downright addictive. For the annual "25 Days of Christmas" block, there will be Tori Spelling and Tia Mowry in the musical holiday movie The Mistle-Tones, directed by Camp Rock 2's Paul Hoen. And in an attempt to expand the channel's comedy lineup, fans can look for Baby Daddy, a half-hour laffer starring Dancing With the Stars' Chelsea Kane and executive produced by Nine Lives of Chloe King's Dan Berendsen about a dude trying to raise the daughter his ex has left on his doorstep. Think of this as the funnier, male-skewing take on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Speaking of, the network has also announced the fifth-season renewal of Secret Life, making it the first series to make it past 100 episodes. At this rate, that kid of Amy's will soon be old enough to have its own spin-off.
So what do you think of all this ABC Family news? Anything jumping out at you?
