Freeform Inks Script To Series Deal For ‘Party Girls’

Freeform have announced that it has signed a script to series deal for “Party Girls,” a half-hour, single-camera dramedy inspired by the true story of Ericka Suzanne, daughter of the first female leader of the Black Panther Party, Elaine Brown. Set in Oakland in the ‘70s, “Party Girls” will follow Ericka’s attempt to survive her adolescence as her mother rises in the Party. The plot explores an unconventional mother-daughter relationship, balancing the stakes of the movement with the humor inherent in coming-of-age, and asking the question how do you rebel when your mom is leading a rebellion?

From Platform One Media, headed by CEO Katie O’Connell Marsh, “Party Girls” will be executive produced by Elisa Ellis of Platform One Media (“Narcos”), Fishburne and Helen Sugland of Cinema Gypsy Productions (“grown-ish,” “black-ish”), and Lance Krall and Peter Siaggas of Picture It Productions, with Dayna Lynne North (“Insecure”) set to write the pilot script and serve as executive producer/showrunner, should it go to series. Ericka Suzanne is repped by the Law Office of Adia Z. May, P.C.

According to an ABC executive, Disney+ will contain about 7,000 to 8,000 episodes from the huge Disney/ABC television library, but no details on how shows from Disney’s Freeform channel will be part of Disney+ have yet been announced.
