“We’re delighted to produce more episodes of ‘Melissa & Joey’ and ‘Baby Daddy,’ two series that together have helped ABC Family establish a strong comedy block that continues to make our audience laugh out loud,” says ABC Family president Tom Ascheim in a press release.
Additionally, the network has ordered three new drama pilots: “Alice in Arabia,” “Recovery Road” and “Unstrung.”
“Alice in Arabia” is about an American teenage girl who is unknowingly kidnapped by her extended Saudi Arabian family after her parents die. She finds herself a stranger in a new world, a prisoner in her grandfather’s royal compound, but is intrigued by the country’s offerings and diverse people.
“Recovery Road” is based on the YA novel by Blake Nelson, about a teenage girl dealing with addiction, and “Unstrung” follows a brother and sister as they rise in the sexy, cutthroat ranks of professional tennis.
