Freeform announces “Party of Five” reboot with an interesting modern twist… The 1990s are back (sort of)! A “Party of Five” pilot has just been announced by Freeform, Disney’s young adult cable network. But, this reboot has a definite twist from the groundbreaking original series. This new iteration of “Party of Five” follows the five Buendías children as they struggle to survive together as a family after their parents are deported to Mexico.
Christopher Keyser and Amy Lippman wrote the pilot for “Party of Five” with Michal Zebede (“Castle”) and Rodrigo Garcia (“Nine Lives”) is set to direct. Keyser, Lippman and Garcia will executive produce and Zebede serves as co-executive producer.
“Twenty-five years ago, we imagined a story about five kids navigating the world after the untimely death of their parents,” said executive producers Amy Lippman and Christopher Keyser. “Today, stories of families being separated, children having to raise themselves in the wake of their parents’ deportations, don’t require any imagination; they are everywhere. This new iteration of ‘Party of Five’ isn’t a retread of the original; it’s a whole new look at kids trying to parent each other in the wake of circumstances beyond their control, yet learning a similar lesson: that families persist no matter how great the obstacles.”
“From the moment we heard that Amy and Chris were updating their iconic series with this timely and powerful twist, we knew we had to have this pilot. We’re honored to be the home for the next, brilliant iteration of their vision,” said Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president of Programming and Development.
Freeform’s growing slate of original scripted dramas includes new hits “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” and “Siren,” critically acclaimed “The Bold Type,” and the upcoming series “Good Trouble” from the executive producers of “The Fosters.”
