ABC Family orders Lopez, Polone pilots

'The Fosters,' 'Socio' move forward in development

ABC has greenlit drama pilots exec produced by Jennifer Lopez and Gavin Palone, respectively.

“The Fosters,” which Lopez is shepherding with creators and exec producers Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, focuses on a multiethnic family of both foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Simon Fields and Greg Gugliotta are also exec producing for Nuyorican Prods. and Prodco.

Polone’s “Socio,” written by co-exec producer Adam Milch (“Greek”), is centered on a 16-year-old who is both charismatic and an alleged sociopath. The character, who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood, becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is murdered.

“ABC Family continues to find and develop original programming that adds new dimension and depth to the storytelling we offer,” said exec veep of original programming and development Kate Juergens. “Both these shows are headed by wonderful executive producers who know the millennial space well and know how to connect with audiences.”
