In a purrfect world, we would have gotten a second season of ABC Family's The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Unfortunately, 2011's cult fave about a teen (Skyler Samuels) descended from an ancient race of cat people only had one life to live, so fans were left with a lot of questions after its cliffhanger — and a lingering hope that they'd someday hear good news about the rumored Chloe King TV-movie.
Writer Dan Berendsen has become quite the tween and young adult whisperer in recent years, penning series and movies for the young generation — including Hannah Montana: The Movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam and ABC Family's recent drama The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Now Berendsen is back at ABC Family, but this time returning to his sitcom roots with Baby Daddy. The show, which airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c, stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau as a twentysomething guy whose ex-girlfriend dumps their baby at his doorstep and then splits. Tahj Mowry, Melissa Peterman, Derek Theler and Chelsea Kane also star. Berendsen took a pregnant pause to tell us why we should make room for Daddy.
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.
