"ABC Family expanded its schedule to present three nights of original programming this summer, and we saw our most successful on record, one that gave us our very own 'triple-threat' — Switched at Birth, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Pretty Little Liars," ABC Family President Michael Riley said in a statement. "Joining this group of series will be another season of Make It or Break It, just in time to ignite Olympic fever, and a back-order of The Lying Game. Our momentum continues to grow, and I'm thrilled with the strength of our schedule which includes a great mix of returning favorites, breakout series and what are sure to be new hits."
The new pilots include two dramas and two comedies. Bunheads, a drama from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, is about a Las Vegas showgirl who marries a man on a whim and moves to his small town to work with her mother-in-law at her dance school.
"I spent 20 years of my life with my hair in a bun. I was supposed to be a dancer," Sherman-Palladino said. "My mother was a dancer. Her greatest heartbreak was when I got on 'Roseanne'. So, while writing this will never equal playing 'Rumpelteazer' in a bus and truck tour of Cats, it does let me to tip my hat to a really special time in my life."
