Eyeing a summer premiere, ABC Family has ordered eight episodes of Beautiful People from Sony Pictures Television.
The one-hour drama tracks the ups and downs of two teen-age sisters and their mother as the Kerr family relocates from a small town in New Mexico after the younger sibling receives a scholarship to attend a prestigious private school in New York.
Production is slated to begin this spring.
"This is a great project. It’s a smart, coming-of-age story about two sisters who move from New Mexico to the big city. We think it’ll be a great addition to ABC Family," president Paul Lee said in a prepared statement.
