Sofia Black-D’Elia’s Samantha is a 20-something alcoholic struggling to stay sober and find a new normal in Freeform’s comedy Single Drunk Female. The network has released the first trailer for the series, from Girls’ Jenni Konner and The Conners‘ Simone Finch, ahead of its January 20 premiere. Ally Sheedy also stars as Samantha’s mom, Carol.
Per the logline, in Single Drunk Female, after a public flame-out at a New York media company, 20-something alcoholic Samantha Fink (Black-D’Elia) is forced to seize the only chance she has to sober up and avoid jail time: moving back home with her overbearing mother, Carol (Sheedy). Back in Greater Boston, Samantha restarts her life, working at the local grocery store while surrounded by all of the triggers that made her drink in the first place. Confronted with remnants of her old life, including run-ins with her perfect former best friend, who is now dating her ex, Samantha sets out on a path to move past her worst self and figure out her best self. Kinda.
Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard also star.
The series, from 20th Television, is written and created by Finch, who executive produces with Konner, Daisy Gardner, Phil Traill, Nora Silver and Leslye Headland, who also directed the pilot.
Single Drunk Female premieres with back-to-back episodes January 20 on Freeform.
