Freeform Orders Last Summer Series from Jessica Biel

-

Freeform has given the green light to the Last Summer series, from Entertainment One (eOne) and executive producers Bert V. Royal (Easy A, Recovery Road), with Iron Ocean Productions’ Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple (The Sinner, Limetown). The pilot is executive produced and directed by Max Winkler (Jungleland, Flower).

Last Summer is an unconventional thriller that takes place over three summers — ‘93, ‘94, ‘95 — in a small Texas town when a beautiful and popular teen, Kate, goes missing and, seemingly unrelated, a girl, Jeanette, goes from being a sweet and 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.

The series stars Chiara Aurelia (Tell Me Your Secrets), Mika Abdalla (Project Mc2), Michael Landes (The Liberator), Froy Gutierrez (Teen Wolf), Harley Quinn Smith (Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood), Allius Barnes (Unbelievable), Blake Lee (Fam), Nathaniel Ashton (Mr. Mercedes) and Brooklyn Sudano (Taken).

“At Freeform, we are constantly looking to tell bold stories that drive cultural conversation—‘Last Summer’ will do just that,” Lauren Corrao, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, Freeform said previously. “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.”
