ABC Family has given series orders to drama series as it continues to build its original programming lineup prior to its rebranding to Freeform in January.
The new series include Guilt, a one-hour soapy drama about a young American woman in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate, and Beyond, a one-hour drama about a young man who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers new supernatural abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.
“These two shows are an exciting part of our evolution into Freeform,” said Burke. “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.”
