ABC Family picks up gymnastics series
'Perfect 10' centers on teen Olympic hopefulsABC Family is hoping to score a "Perfect 10," handing out a pilot pickup to a project set in the world of competitive gymnastics.
"10," which follows a group of teen Olympic hopefuls as they train and prepare for their day in the spotlight, is an hourlong drama created and written by Holly Sorensen, who also will executive produce with Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper and Joanna Vernetti of SuperDelicious (CW's "Farmer Wants a Wife"). "10" is produced by Prodco Inc.
"We loved this millennial drama and its compelling characters right way," said Kate Juergens, executive vp original series programming and development at ABC Family.
The "10" pickup follows recent pilot orders for two other projects: "10 Things I Hate About You," a single-camera comedy based on the feature film, and "Ruby and the Rockits," a multicamera comedy. All three pilots are set go into production in the fall in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, ABC Family is set to debut two comedy series -- "Roommates" and "Sophie" -- early next year.
Sorenson and SuperDelicious are repped by WMA.
