FREEFORM TO DEVELOP COMEDY 'NATIONAL PARKER,' FROM JENNA FISCHER AND ALEXANDRA HENRIKSON WITH WARNER HORIZON SCRIPTED TELEVISION
Freeform announced today that it has put into development "National Parker," a half-hour comedy from actress and executive producer Jenna Fischer ("Splitting Up Together"), and writer Alexandra Henrikson with Warner Horizon Scripted Television.
· When social media-obsessed Parker Adams' world comes crashing down after a breakup, she decides to put her New York City life behind her and become an adult with a real job - as a national park ranger at Alaska's Hickberry National Park.
· Jenna Fischer ("Splitting Up Together" and "The Office") will serve as executive producer.
· Alexandra Henrikson ("Maniac") will serve as co-executive producer and is also set to write the pilot script.
· Jenna Fischer says, "When Alex and I met we became fast friends, bonding over our love of national parks, activism and a desire to create projects for badass funny women. We also wanted to showcase the ingenuity and brilliance of the often-underestimated millennial generation. 'National Parker' is what sprang forth. We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with Warner Horizon and Freeform to bring 'National Parker' to life."
