Sofia Black-D’Elia has been cast as a lead in a pilot series for Freeform!
The network has ordered Single Drunk Female, a half hour comedy series from 20th Century Television, Deadline reports.
The show “follows a 28-year-old irreverent alcoholic Samantha Fink (Black-D’Elia), who, after a spectacularly embarrassing public breakdown, is forced to move back home with her overbearing mother to sober up and avoid jail time. But when her childhood best friend reveals surprising news, Samantha realizes she can no longer qualify as a party girl – she’s a walking disaster.”
Ally Sheedy will play “Carol, Samantha’s overbearing but absent parent. Rebecca Henderson (Russian Doll) plays Olivia, a brilliant melancholic lesbian who works as one of the greeters at AA. Sasha Compère (Love Life) is Brit, Samantha’s smart, loyal and always well-put-together ex-BFF. Lily Mae Harrington (Some Freaks) plays Felicia, Samantha’s fun and fearless drinking companion who is always counting down the days until Samantha is out of rehab so they can meet up at their favorite local bar. And Garrick Bernard, a staff writer on Star Trek: Lower Decks, plays James, an isolating, high-functioning drunk who works in the tech industry.”
Leslye Headland will direct and executive produce with a script by Simone Finch.
