ABC Family has ordered a new one hour drama series from Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls) titled Bunheads.
The drama series follows a Vegas showgirl (Sutton Foster) who marries a man on a whim, moves with him to a coastal town and takes a job in her mother-in-law’s dance school. Bunheads joins the recently ordered Baby Daddy and Beverly Hills Nannies, with all three series set to start production in the coming months.
Speaking of the pick up Kate Juergens, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, ABC Family said, “Amy and I had a great collaboration on ‘Gilmore Girls,’ which continues to find new fans here on ABC Family, and I look forward to this new partnership being just as successful. Her vision for ‘Bunheads’ aligns beautifully with our brand and is a wonderful addition to ABC Family’s original programming slate. I know our Millennial audience is going to fall in love with Sutton Foster the same way Broadway has
