Burbank, CA (March 11, 2013) - ABC Family announces a red-hot summer line-up with the premiere of four new original series including reality competition series "Dancing Fools," family drama "The Fosters," mystery drama "Twisted" and docu-soap "The Vineyard." Summer premiere dates are also set for returning original series "Melissa & Joey," "Baby Daddy," "Switched at Birth" and "Pretty Little Liars."

"Dancing Fools" premieres Wednesday, May 29th, at 9:00 - 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. The half-hour comedy clip show features the funniest, most outrageous and memorable dances caught on camera. The dancers from the top two clips of the week compete on stage for a chance to win $10,000. The series is hosted by Melissa Peterman, who also stars in ABC Family's "Baby Daddy" and in the upcoming ABC reality series "Bet on Your Baby."

From executive producer Jennifer Lopez ("American Idol," "What to Expect When You're Expecting," "The Back-Up Plan"), ABC Family's new original series "The Fosters" will premiere on Monday, June 3rd, at 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, following the series finale of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." The one-hour drama centers on two moms (Teri Polo and Sherri Saum) raising a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids. The series also stars Jake T. Austin, Hayden Byerly, David Lambert, Maia Mitchell, Danny Nucci and Cierra Ramirez.

"Twisted," premiering on Tuesday, June 11th, at 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, is a one-hour mystery full of twists and turns that is centered on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past (Avan Jogia) who has recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood (Maddie Hasson and Kylie Bunbury). He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is found dead in her home. The series also stars Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards.

"The Vineyard," premiering on Wednesday, July 24th, at 9:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, is a dramatic coming-of-age docu-soap that follows a handful of 20-somethings on Martha's Vineyard for the summer. Tight quarters, new friends and new rivals, all living, working and playing together, make this picturesque playground ripe for mischief and romance.

Other original series scheduled to premiere this summer include hit comedies "Melissa & Joey" and "Baby Daddy" and fan favorites "Switched at Birth" and "Pretty Little Liars."

"Melissa & Joey," the hit comedy starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence returns for the third season of the original series on Wednesday, May 29th, at 8:00 - 8:30 p.m. ET/PT. Mel, a local politician and a former wild child, and Joe, her down-on-his-luck "manny," work together to raise Mel's teenaged niece Lennox and nephew Ryder.

The series follows single dad Ben, his brother Danny, his buddy Tucker, and his close childhood friend (and secret admirer) Riley as they navigate single life in New York City under the constant supervision of Ben's overbearing mother, Bonnie.

"Switched at Birth" returns with all new episodes on Monday, June 10th, 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Now in its second season, the award-winning family drama focuses on two teenage girls from very different homes who were accidentally switched at birth and are getting to know their biological families and each other.

"Pretty Little Liars" returns for its fourth season on Tuesday, June 11th, at 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The hit series revolves around four teenage girlfriends who lost touch with one another after the mysterious death of a friend, Alison.
