Press Release

FREEFORM ORDERS ‘LAST SUMMER’ PILOT FROM eONE

BERT V. ROYAL, JESSICA BIEL, MICHELLE PURPLE AND MAX WINKLER SET TO EXECUTIVE PRODUCE

Freeform has picked up the one-hour drama “Last Summer” to pilot, it was announced today by Lauren Corrao, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development.

“Last Summer” is an unconventional thriller that takes place over three summers—’93, ’94, ’95—in a small Texas town when a beautiful popular teen, Kate, is abducted and, seemingly unrelated, a girl, Jeanette, goes from being a sweet, awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town and, by ’95, the most despised person in America. Each episode is told from the POV of one of the two main girls (Jeanette and Kate), which will have the viewers loyalties constantly shifting as more information is revealed.

“At Freeform, we are constantly looking to tell bold stories that drive cultural conversation—’Last Summer’ will do just that,” said Lauren Corrao, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, Freeform. “Bert’s incredible character detail and unique voice coupled with Max’s distinctive vision is sure to leave our viewers on the edge of their seats. We are also incredibly honored to have Jessica and Michelle’s female-forward prowess contributing to this uniquely layered show.”

“I’m so happy to be back at Freeform with an amazing team of eOne, Max, Michelle and Jessica by my side,” said Royal. “We’re really excited to tell this story that we hope will spark some interesting conversations about how our society can upend a person’s life and send them to the hell of infamy before—and sometimes even, despite—the facts.”

“Last Summer” comes from eOne and is written and executive produced by Bert V. Royal (“Easy A,” “Recovery Road”), with Iron Ocean Productions’ Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple (“The Sinner,” “Limetown”), and Max Winkler (“Jungleland,” “Flower”), who will also direct.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
