Freeform is making a move into the animated space. The Disney owned cable network has put two animated series into development: Betches, based on the multimedia brand of the same name; and Woman World, an adaptation of Aminder Dhaliwal’s graphic novel.
Betches is a half-hour, irreverent animated series that will follow three best friends and roommates as they navigate early adulthood in New York City together. The three women loudly try to figure out who they are in their careers and in love. They make almost every mistake in the book along the way, but they’re doing their best to make sure they have an anything-but-basic life. Rachel Koller will pen the the pilot. Emma Roberts, Samantha Fishbein, Jordana Abraham, Aleen Kuperman, Carli Haney, Kesila Childers and Gil Goldschein will executive produce.
Woman World playfully answers the question “what would our world look like if men became extinct?” This community of women leans on each other for survival as they search for love and their identity in this ladies-only existence. Aminder Dhaliwal is adapting her graphic novel for television. Felicia Day is attached to executive produce.
