ABC Family lands 2 pilots


ABC Family has greenlighted two comedy pilots: "Happy Campers" and "Roomies," sources said.

"Campers" hails from Carter Covington, a writer on ABC Family's promising new drama series "Greek." The single-camera project chronicles the experiences of a family on a cross-country road trip.

"Roomies," from Robin French and Kieron Quirke (BBC's "Man Stroke Woman") revolves around a group of friends living as roommates.

In addition to "Campers" and "Roomies," ABC Family is eyeing several other half-hour and one-hour projects for pilot pickup, sources said.

After a promising start, ABC Family recently ordered the back 10 episodes of its new college drama series "Greek" (HR 8/1).
