ABC Family starts production on new drama pilot "The Fosters"


“The Fosters,” a one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms, begins shooting in Los Angeles this week. Stef Foster (Teri Polo) is a divorcee now in a happy relationship with Lena (Sherri Saum), her soulmate and very significant other. Stef, a policewoman, is the biological mother of Brandon (David Lambert), who she had with her ex-husband Mike (Danny Nucci) who is also a cop. Stef and Lena are the adoptive parents of Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) and Jesus (Jake T. Austin) out of the foster system. Lena, the vice-principal at the charter school her children attend, is the more soft-hearted one and ends up taking in Callie (Maia Mitchell), a defiant teen fresh out of juvie. Stef is initially upset, because they had agreed not to foster any more kids until Brandon was out of the house and feels that Callie is bound to disrupt their stable, happy home. But they all soon realize that Callie is a broken girl who needs mending — and they may have no choice but to take her in.

I was excited when i heard about this new ABC Family show! I love the multi-ethnic angle they are going with for the show I think it adds diversity to the already very diverse show. I also really enjoy them mixing foster and biological kids as well, because it shows a blended family also adding in the two mom’s aspect you really have a ground breaking show here. This show combines a lot of sensitive topics like same-sex relationships and blended family’s which is great because there are no shows that showcase family’s like this and I think it shows how the ideal vision of a family has grown and changed over the years. Although this may be a touchy subject I think it adds to the raw emotion of the plotline. Character wise I see a lot of potential, especially with Callie as she is a very broken girl and I think showcasing hardships is one of the best ways to get kids through their own ones they may be having. This show has the potential to break a lot of ground with teenagers especially ones in similar situations.
