ABC FAMILY GIVES SERIES ORDERS TO SCRIPTED DRAMAS “GUILT” AND “BEYOND”
“Guilt” Is a Co-Production of Sea to Sky Entertainment
(the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films)
Burbank, CA (November 5, 2015) — ABC Family delivers on its promise to increase its original programming slate by picking up two new scripted dramas, “Guilt” and “Beyond,” to series, announced today by Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. These series join recently announced pickups of a fifth season for “Switched at Birth,” a season 2 pickup for “Monica the Medium” and drama pilot “Famous in Love.” ABC Family is becoming Freeform in January 2016.
“These two shows are an exciting part of our evolution into Freeform,” said Burke. “’Guilt’ is a sexy, sophisticated event series whose European location feels bigger than anything we have ever done. ‘Beyond’ introduces our audience to a new hero and takes them into a complex supernatural universe with great suspense and deep emotion.”
“Guilt” is a one-hour soapy drama about a young American woman in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. As the investigation unfolds, viewers will question whether she’s a naïve, young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless glare of the British tabloids, or whether she’s a sociopath who brutally murdered her friend. Even her sister, who comes to London to defend her, will question how well she knows her little sister as more and more ugly truths come out. This mystery will twist through all layers of London society – from a posh but depraved sex club, all the way up to the Royal Family itself. “Guilt” is written, created and executive-produced by Kathryn Price (“The Game Plan”) and Nichole Millard (“The Game Plan”). Stephen McPherson will serve as executive producer. “Guilt” is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions in association with ABC Family. Gary Fleder (“Kingdom,” “Scorpion”) directed the pilot.
“Beyond” is a one-hour drama about a young man who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers new supernatural abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy. From Imperative Entertainment and Automatik, “Beyond” is created, written and executive produced by Adam Nussdorf (“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”). Tim Kring (“Heroes”), Zak Kadison, Justin Levy and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones will serve as Executive Producers. Lee Toland Krieger (“The Age of Adaline”) directed the pilot.
Part of the Disney|ABC Television Group, ABC Family (to be renamed Freeform in January 2016) is distributed in 94 million homes. The network entertains and connects to audiences with bold, relatable programming that celebrates the epic adventure of becoming an adult, from first kiss to first kid. The programming is a combination of network-defining original series and original movies, quality acquired series and blockbuster theatricals. “WATCH ABC Family” (also to be renamed Freeform in January 2016) is an authenticated service which allows viewers with participating TV subscription services access to 24/7 live viewing of the network, as well as continued on-demand access to such popular series at home and on-the-go via a wide array of devices. The network is also the destination for annual holiday events with “13 Nights of Halloween” and “25 Days of Christmas.”

Clark Duke Joins The Growing Ensemble Cast Of Young Comedians For The Pilot
NEW YORK, NY – October 16, 2015 – Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Frozen River, Louie), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Martian) and Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Office) have joined the ensemble cast of the new one-hour SHOWTIME comedy pilot I’m Dying Up Here. They join previously announced cast members Ari Graynor (For A Good Time Call), Andrew Santino (Mixology), RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Erik Griffin (Workaholics) and Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings). If the pilot is picked-up to series, Leo and Duke would appear as series regulars, Stan would guest star. Leo will play the role of “Goldie,” a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist and nurtures her comedians with tough love. Stan will play “Clay,” a funny, charming comedian on the rise, who declares irrelevancy as his biggest fear. He is idolized by his ex and fellow comedian Cassie (Graynor). Duke will play “Larry,” a ballsy young comedian from Boston who moves to L.A. with the hopes of making it big.
Produced by SHOWTIME, I’M DYING UP HERE is written and executive produced by Dave Flebotte (Masters of Sex, Will & Grace, Desperate Housewives), and executive produced by Golden Globe® winner Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar (The Departed, Semi-Pro), and Christina Wayne (Copper) for Endemol Shine Studios and Assembly Entertainment. The pilot will be directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies). Set in L.A.’s celebrated, infamous stand-up comedy scene of the 1970s, during which the careers of many comedy superstars began, the pilot will delve into the inspired and damaged psyches that inhabit the hilarious, but complex business of making an audience laugh. I’M DYING UP HERE will shoot in LA this fall. The pilot is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder.
Melissa Leo received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award®, as well as a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for her tour de force performance in The Fighter.

Her other television credits include Homicide: Life on the Streets, Treme, and Wayward Pines.
