At today’s Freeform Summit, the network announced that they will be expanding into animation with two new projects:

Betches:

  • Based on the popular multimedia brand of the same name, created by three millennial women
  • 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 (Lady Bits with Lauren Giraldo) will write the pilot.
  • Executive production team includes:
    • Emma Roberts (American Horror Story)
    • Samantha Fishbein (co-founder of Betches Media)
    • Jordana Abraham (co-founder of Betches Media)
    • Aleen Kuperman (co-founder of Betches Media)
    • Carli Haney
    • Kesila Childers
    • Gil Goldschein from Bunim-Murray Productions (Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real World)

Woman World:

  • A half-hour, comedic animated series based on Aminder Dhaliwal’s graphic novel of the same name.
  • The pilot 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.
  • The pilot is executive produced by Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) and written by Aminder Dhaliwal (Pinky Malinky, Close Enough).
