DESCRIPTION:
(from Freeform's press release, January 2019) reeform announced today that it has signed a script to series deal for "Party Girls," a half-hour, single-camera dramedy inspired by the true story of Ericka Suzanne, daughter of the first female leader of the Black Panther Party, Elaine Brown. Set in Oakland in the '70s, "Party Girls" will follow Ericka's attempt to survive her adolescence as her mother rises in the Party.
