What they’re saying:

  • Tricia Melton, senior vice president, marketing, creative and branding, Freeform: “Freeform is a brand that is inherently built on taking a stand on issues our audience believes in — what is more important at a time like this than encouraging social distancing? We are keenly conscious that we are a young adult entertainment brand — not a news or health organization — but at a time like this, people are craving entertainment content as a release valve from all that is going on. We are leaning into that in the positive way; it’s our privilege to provide content — both programming and social content — that can give our audience a much-needed laugh, or connect with them in an emotional and relatable way.”
