Nearly 20 years after it wrapped its six-season run, Party of Five is returning to TV.
Disney-owned cable network Freeform has handed out a sizable put-pilot order for a reboot of the Fox drama from original series creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman. The news, poised to be announced Thursday afternoon at the first-ever Freeform Summit event in L.A., comes two months after THR exclusively reported that original producers Sony Pictures Television Studios were readying the reboot with an immigration twist.
Freeform additionally is plotting its first period drama, putting Cleopatra in development. The project, originally developed for NBC in 2012, has already opened a writers room, plotting out multiple scripts with an eye toward going to series.
