ABC Family Original Series January 2012 Premieres; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of November 7, 2011)


Pretty Little Liars

ABC Family will ring in the New Year with the world premiere of a new one-hour original drama series, Jane By Design, and with all-new episodes of returning original hit drama series Switched at Birth, Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game, all set to premiere the first week of January 2012.
The girls are ready to kick some "A" in all-new batch of episodes from the second season of ABC Family's blockbuster hit original series Pretty Little Liars, returning on a new night, Mondays, starting Monday, January 2 at 8:00PM ET/PT. The Lying Game will return with all-new episodes to round out its first season on Monday, January 2, at 9:00PM ET/PT. The series comes from the producers of Pretty Little Liars and will now air back-to-back with that series! ABC Family's big summer hit, Switched at Birth, returns with all-new episodes to round its freshman year on a new night and time, Tuesdays at 8, starting Tuesday, January 3. Then Jane By Design will make its world premiere on Tuesday, January 3 at 9:00PM ET/PT. The new drama follows Jane Quimby (Erica Dasher), a quirky teen with an eclectic chic fashion sense, who lands a job at a hip fashion house when they mistake her for an adult.
And finally, fan favorites The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Make It or Break It will both return with all-new original episodes in early Spring 2012, to round out the original drama schedule. We will have a comedy update soon, as Melissa & Joey will return for a second season after airing 30 episodes in the first season (in two halves), and possibly another new comedy or two, as we hinted earlier this week.
