AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original comedy series Amber Brown starring Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy, Cruel Summer) and Carsyn Rose (The Rookie). Production will begin shortly in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Based on the best-selling books by Paula Danziger, the series is an unfiltered look at a girl finding her own voice through art and music in the wake of her parents' divorce.

Rose will play Amber Brown, an everykid who is going through what many children experience, and making sense of her new family dynamic through her sketches and video diary. Drew will play Amber's mother Sarah Brown, a good and caring mom with strict rules.

The series will also star Darin Brooks and Liliana Inouye.

Bonnie Hunt created the series. She will serve as showrunner and direct several episodes. She will also executive produce with Bob Higgins and Jon Rutherford. Boat Rocker Media will produce.
