Freeform has ordered half-hour comedy pilot Alone Together from the Lonely Island team of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. Esther Povitsky, (Lady Dynamite Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Benji Afalo (Not Safe with Nikki Glaser) will star in, write and executive-produce the pilot. Eben Russell will also write and executive-produce.
Alone Together follows 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.
“This is a fiercely funny look at young adults who are unapologetically themselves while blazing their own paths, which fits nicely into the tradition already set by our current slate,” said Karey Burke, EVP Programming and Development at Freeform.
Alone Together is Freeform’s second recent pilot order, joining previously announced Issues. It also joins new series Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Famous In Love, starring Bella Thorne, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, and the sixth season pickup of hit comedy Baby Daddy.
