Ready to get Twisted?

ABC Family's new summer drama doesn't officially premiere until June, but viewers will get a chance to preview the first episode following the season finale of Pretty Little Liars on March 19 at 9 p.m.

Twisted revolves around Danny Desai (Victorious' Avan Jogia), a teen with a troubled past who has recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood. He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is found dead in her home.

In the first of two images, exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Danny is reunited with childhood pal Jo (Maddie Hasson), an offbeat and tough yet vulnerable girl, while her father Kyle (Sam Robards), the town sheriff, looks on.

In the second photo, Danny and Jo's former BFF Lacey (Kylie Bunbury), an ex-tomboy who has found popularity at school, and friend Regina (Karynn Moore), are caught up by something -- or someone -- out of our view.

Denise Richards, Ashton Moio and Kimberly Quinn co-star in the Prodco-produced series from executive producer Gavin Polone, David Babcock and Greek's Adam Milch.

The special programming note is a preview of what Tuesday nights this summer will look like for ABC Family, as it was announced earlier this week that the similarly themed Pretty Little Liars would serve as a lead-in at 8 p.m.

Twisted premieres at 9 p.m. June 11 on ABC Family.
