Motherland - Fantasy Drama Receives Pilot Order + Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective - Comedy in Development at Freeform



Freeform has ordered Motherland to pilot, a military fantasy drama centering on witches from Claws creator Eliot Laurence. They are also developing comedy series, Pippa Smith: Grown-Up Detective, produced by Joss Whedon.

Motherland, from Freeform Studio and Gary Sanchez Productions, was originally put in development in August 2016. The logline: Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country, the series follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into early deployment at Fort Salem. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world, but with tactics and weapons supernatural.

Pippa Smith, meanwhile, from Electus’ Big Breakfast is a half-hour comedy created by Siobhan Thompson and Rebecca Drysdale. It follows Pippa, a twentysomething former kid sleuth, as she deals with relationships, addiction and being too dang old for the detecting game. Each episode she solves a new case, while unraveling a bigger mystery and attempting to navigate a messy personal life.
