Teri Polo, Sherri Saum, Jake T. Austin, Hayden Byerly, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci and Cierra Ramirez will star. Joanna Johnson (“Make It or Break It”), Simon Fields, Benny Medina and Greg Gugliotta are also exec producing.

David Babcock and Adam Milch join Polone in exec producing “Twisted,” centered on a 16-year-old with a troubled past who becomes the suspect in a fellow student’s death. Avan Jogia, Maddie Hasson, Kylie Bunbury, Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards will appear.
