Freeform Orders 'Party of Five' Reboot to Series

Freeform has today given a series order to a reboot of the original drama series Party of Five. The first season of the new drama will produce 10 episodes. A premiere date window was not immediately announced today.

Based on the FOX drama that aired from 1994-200, the new drama follows the five Acosta children as they struggle to survive together as a family after their parents are deported to Mexico.

Brandon Larracuente, Emily Tosta, Niko Guardado and Elle Paris Legaspi star.

Original series creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman co-wrote the pilot with Michal Zebede. They will all executive produce with pilot director Rodrigo Garcia. Sony Pictures Television will produce.

"Party of Five embodies the heart and soul of what it means to be a family in the most trying of times," said Tom Ascheim, President, Freeform. "We're so lucky that Freeform gets to be the home for this reimagined story, as we continue to represent the resilience of young adults and the importance of fighting for your voice in times of doubt. We are thrilled to be able to share the groundbreaking storytelling from Amy and Chris with a new audience, and are excited for our viewers to discover the beauty of this series."
