Single Drunk Female is returning to Freeform alongside new YA dramedy series While You Were Breeding.
The Disney-owned youth-skewing network has handed the Sofia Black D’Elia and Ally Sheedy-fronted series a second season after performing well for the network both on linear and digital.
Single Drunk Female follows 20-something alcoholic Samantha Fink, played by Black D’Elia, who after a public flame-out at a New York media company, is forced to seize the only chance she has to sober up and avoid jail time: moving back home with her overbearing mother, Carol, played by Sheedy. Back in Greater Boston, Samantha sets out on a path to move past her worst self and figure out her best self. Kinda.
Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard also star.
The series comes from 20th Television and was created by Simone Finch, who executive produces along with Jenni Konner, Daisy Gardner, Phil Traill, Nora Silver and Leslye Headland.
Separately, the network has handed a series order to While You Were Breeding, based on the memoir of Only Murders in the Building writer Kristin Newman.
The one-hour comedy was given a pilot order in October.
The series follows Kacey, played by Chelsea Frei, single for the first time in her 30s, as she escapes her fast-paced life in Los Angeles to see the world. Catherine Cohen plays her best friend from childhood Sasha, Alice Hunter is Hope, another of Kacey’s friends who is a former globetrotting wild child now happily working her face off, much to her party-boy husband’s dismay. Kosha Patel plays Kacey’s friend Rikita, a salt-of-the-earth non-profit lawyer, happily married to her wife and pregnant with their first child.
The series is written by Newman, who executive produces along with Susanna Fogel and Blair Breard. The pilot was directed by Becca Gleason. Freeform is the studio.
“I am thrilled to bring Single Drunk Female back for a second season. Jenni Konner, Simone Finch and Daisy Gardner created a series that struck a strong chord in such a sincere and authentic way. I cannot wait to see what they have in store for Sam as she continues on her journey to becoming her best self in season two,” said Freeform President Tara Duncan. “Our programming strategy is rooted in bringing fun and entertaining stories that reflect the high stakes and endless possibilities of new adulthood. As we continue to build our slate of captivating original series, While You Were Breeding delivers on that promise to our audience.”
