Freeform Orders Dramedy 'While You Were Breeding' Starring Chelsea Frei to Series

Freeform has today given a series order to the original dramedy series While You Were Breeding based on the memoir by Kristin Newman. An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

The series will follow Kacey, single for the first time in her 30s, as she escapes her fast-paced life in Los Angeles to see the world. From culture clash to vacation romances, this internationally set dramedy is a globetrotting journey of self-discovery that will inspire the wanderlust inside everyone.

The series stars Chelsea Frei (Dollface) as Kacey, whose discovery of the joys of solo travel causes her to eschew the marriage and kids route all of her friends have taken in their 30s. Indeed, there is no one left to travel with her! Kacey's emotional journey starts with an epic trip with her fearless best friend from childhood, Sasha (Catherine Cohen, What We Do In the Shadows), a comedic force who owns every room she's in. Alice Hunter (Another Period) is Hope, another of Kacey's friends who is a former globetrotting wild child now happily working her face off, much to her party-boy husband's dismay. And Kosha Patel (Girlboss) portrays Kacey's friend Rikita, a salt-of-the-earth non-profit lawyer, happily married to her wife and pregnant with their first child.

Newman wrote the pilot, which was directed by Becca Gleason. They will executive produce with Susanna Fogel and Blair Breard.
