Freeform gets into Good Trouble with Fosters spinoff
Freeform announced today that Good Trouble is the official title for their spinoff to the critically acclaimed and GLAAD award-winning drama The Fosters. The series, which was announced earlier this year, will follow Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles.
Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) is attached to direct and executive produce the first episode, which will begin production this summer. Joanna Johnson, Peter Paige, and Bradley Bredeweg serve as creators and showrunners, while Gregory Gugliotta, Christine Sacani, Mitchell, Ramirez, Jennifer Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, and Benny Medina serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Nuyorican Productions, Inc. in association with Freeform.
“We’re seeing millennials in this country doing extraordinary things, making noise, taking action. Stirring up Good Trouble as they grow, strive and struggle to make the mess of their early twenties into the message, “said Johnson, Paige, and Bredeweg in a joint statement. “As Callie and Mariana venture to Los Angeles to start their adult lives and embark on their separate but intertwined journeys to change the world, they’re going to have all the Good Trouble they can handle.
Don’t miss the three-night series finale event of The Fosters beginning Monday, June 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET, through Wednesday, June 6.
Chu most recently directed the highly anticipated adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians, which will hit theaters on August 17. He is also set to direct the upcoming film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights.
