Laci Mosley (The Wedding Year), Melanie Field (Heathers) and Patty Guggenheim (Splitting Up Together) are set to star alongside Laura Chinn (The Mick) in Florida Girls, Pop TV’s 10-episode comedy series which hails from Chinn, Lionsgate TV, Jax Media and 3 Arts Entertainment. Chinn created, executive produces and stars in the series, slated to begin production in early October.
Inspired by Chinn’s real life growing up on the West Coast of Florida, series follows four women (Chinn, Mosley, Field and Guggenheim) who are forced to confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams.
Chinn plays Shelby, the follower. She’s a total screw-up who tries to better herself because she saw someone else do it. Mosley is Jayla, the self-absorbed one. She’s vain and banks hard on her looks as she pursues her lifelong dream of having exorbitant wealth.
Field portrays Kaitlin, the stunted one. She lives her life like she’s still in high school and is the catalyst for all the year-round spring break insanity that Florida has to offer. Guggenheim plays Erica, the thief. She’s that scrub friend who never has money and has no problem letting you pay, but will call you every day if you owe her five dollars.
Chinn executive produces with Jax Media’s Burns and Tony Hernandez as well as Oly Obst and Josh Lieberman of 3 Arts Entertainment. Lionsgate will produce alongside 3 Arts and Jax Media.
