ABC FAMILY ANNOUNCES PICKUP OF SCRIPTED DRAMA �THREE MOONS OVER MILFORD�
Burbank, CA (January 9, 2006) � ABC Family has picked up eight one-hour episodes of the drama THREE MOONS OVER MILFORD it was announced today by Paul Lee, President, ABC Family. Produced in association with Touchstone Television, the series will begin production this spring, and is executive produced by Holly Goldberg Sloan ("The Secret Life Of Girls") and Gary Rosen ("Hacks") with Jon Amiel ("Eyes," "Entrapment," "The Singing Detective" � UK mini-series) consulting. The pilot was written by Howard Chesley and Jon Boorstin who will also serve as co-executive producers.
"On the heels of 'Wildfire's' fantastic season premiere it's great to pick up yet another show that will make ABC Family a destination for originals of the highest quality," said Lee.
THREE MOONS OVER MILFORD is a quirky drama set in a picturesque small town that reflects the world's reaction to a cosmic explosion threatening Earth�s existence. The residents of Milford have taken their lives to the extreme: quitting jobs, indulging vices and basically living as if today were their last. The Montgomery family is no exception. Janet Montgomery's husband abandoned his family to climb the seven largest peaks in the world, her daughter Lydia has taken up witchcraft to help save the Earth and her 17 year old son Alex (Sam Murphy, "Hope & Faith") gets involved with the older next door neighbor. The wacky town of Milford is rounded out by cast members Nora Dunn (�Saturday Night Live�) as Michelle Graybar, the opportunistic real estate agent; Samantha Quan ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days") as Claire Dollinger, the neighbor that attracts Alex�s eye; and Rob Boltin (�Joey�) as Mack Demaris, the sympathetic and down-to-earth lawyer.
