Pop Orders 10 Episodes of Comedy 'Florida Girls' Created by and Starring Laura Chinn

Pop has today give a series order to the original comedy series Florida Girls created by and starring Laura Chinn (The Mick). The first season will include 10 episodes, with production set to begin this fall. 

The comedy focuses on four girls living in Small Town, Florida who confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams. It follows the four girlfriends who are partying under the poverty line while navigating very relatable problems as they try to better their situations. Living in a dilapidated beach town full of alcoholics, these street-wise women haphazardly attempt to find self-worth and learn to "adult" in a society that deems poor, uneducated women as valueless. Their backbone ultimately lies within their tight-knit, non-judgmental and loving friendship.

Chinn serves as executive producer with Tony Hernandez, Oly Obst, Josh Lieberman and director Lilly Burns. Lionsgate Television, Jax Media and 3 Arts Entertainment will produce.

"This hilarious scripted series is both bold and truthful, shining a light on four females whose friendship prevails over the sometimes unfortunate cards they are dealt," said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Pop. "With Lionsgate, Laura, Jax and 3 Arts, this dynamite team is hard at work to bring these Clearwater characters to life in this self-reflective comedy."

"I am so excited to make Florida Girls with Pop," said Chinn. "I grew up in Florida and have always wanted to share my wildly fun and truly insane experience in a state that is so much more than just: Florida Man on Bath Salts Head-Butts Car, Slaps Fire Chief."
