Freeform has handed out a pilot order to Alone Together, a half-hour comedy pilot from The Lonely Island team of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, TVWise has learned.
“This is a fiercely funny look at young adults who are unapologetically themselves while blazing their own paths, which fits nicely into the tradition already set by our current slate”, said Karey Burke, Executive Vice-President of Programming & Development for Freeform.
Alone Together follows two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds as they try to make their way into the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles only to find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. The half-hour comedy is being penned and executive produced by Esther Povitsky and Benji Afalo, who will also star in the project. Eben Russell will also write and executive-produce.
