Freeform President Tom Ascheim and Executive Vice President of Programming and Development Karey Burke unveiled the new and returning projects for The Walt Disney Company's young adult cable network, Freeform, at the combined Disney|ABC Television's presentation for the national advertising community at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall. Freeform continues to dominate the young adult landscape in cable with the No. 1 comedy (grown-ish) and the No. 1 new drama (Siren) with young adults and holds the No. 2 slot with women 18-34 and women 12-17. Also claiming the title of No. 1 most social cable network for the 7th year in a row and the No. 1 network in digital viewing, Freeform is delivering on its new tagline "A Little Forward."

New programming includes: Besties, a half-hour multi camera comedy from co-creators Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard has been ordered to series by Freeform following the enormous success of Barris's breakout coming-of-age show, grown-ish, the No. 1 cable comedy season-to-date (women 18-34.) This multi-cam sitcom explores friendship, identity, race, and class as two lifelong best friends use each other to get through some of the toughest challenges that they will ever face - figuring out who they are and who they want to be. Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard are executive producers; the series is produced by ABC Signature Studios.

I. Marlene King will expand the universe of Pretty Little Liars for Freeform with a 10-episode series order for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, featuring returning fan favorites Sasha Pieterse as Alison and Janel Parrish as Mona and starring Sofia Carson (Disney's Descendants) as Ava. The drama also welcomes Sydney Park (The Walking Dead) as Caitlin, newcomer Eli Brown as Dylan, Graeme Thomas King (The Widow) as Jeremy, Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) as Claire, and Hayley Erin (General Hospital) in an undisclosed role. In Beacon Heights, a seemingly perfect town, a group of three college friends struggle with the stress of being overachievers. In the aftermath of the town's first murder, each Perfectionist hides behind a secret, a lie and an alibi.
