Freeform has placed a series order for the “Party of Five” reboot. The immigrant-themed project, which comes from original Fox drama’s creators Amy Lippman and Chris Keyer, has received a 10-episode order at the Disney-owned cable network.
The one-hour drama will follow the five Acosta children as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported to Mexico.
“‘Party of Five’ embodies the heart and soul of what it means to be a family in the most trying of times. We’re so lucky that Freeform gets to be the home for this reimagined story, as we continue to represent the resilience of young adults and the importance of fighting for your voice in times of doubt,” Freeform president Tom Ascheim said in a statement announcing the news Monday. “We are thrilled to be able to share the groundbreaking storytelling from Amy and Chris with a new audience, and are excited for our viewers to discover the beauty of this series.”
