‘Guilt’ & ‘Beyond’ Get Series Orders From ABC Family

ABC Family, which is rebranding as Freeform in January, is keeping its promise to expand its original programming slate with series orders for two new scripted dramas: Guilt and Beyond.

FreeformGuilt, reminiscent of the Amanda Knox story, is an hourlong drama about a young American woman in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. As the investigation unfolds, viewers will question whether she’s a naïve young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless glare of the British tabloids or whether she’s a sociopath who brutally murdered her friend.

Guilt is written, created and executive produced by The Game Plan’s Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard. Stephen McPherson exec produces. Guilt is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment (the joint venture between Lionsgate Television and Thunderbird Films) and BV Family Productions in association with ABC Family. Gary Fleder directed the pilot.

Beyond is a one-hour drama about a young man who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers new supernatural abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy. From Imperative Entertainment and Automatik, Beyond is created, written and executive produced by Adam Nussdorf. Tim Kring, Zak Kadison, Justin Levy and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones executive produce. Lee Toland Krieger directed the pilot.

Guilt and Beyond join the recently announced pickups of a fifth season for Switched At Birth, a season 2 of Monica The Medium and drama pilot Famous in Love.
