Karey Burke, Freeform’s executive vice president of Programming and Development, announced a new comedy pilot ‘Alone Together’ by The Lonely Island team of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.
‘Alone Together’ is a half-hour comedy about two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds as they try to make their way into the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles only to find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. Esther Povitsky and Benji Afalo will star in, write and executive-produce the pilot. Eben Russell will also write and executive-produce.
This pilot joins other recently announced pickups, series and pilots including season six for hit comedy ‘Baby Daddy,’ and reality series ‘Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After,’ ‘Famous In Love’ and ‘Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger’ and pilot ‘Issues.’
