LOS ANGELES – Sept. 26, 2018 – Series creator Laura Chinn (“The Mick”) will star alongside Laci Mosley (“The Wedding Year”), Melanie Field (“Heathers”) and Patty Guggenheim (“Splitting Up Together,” “LA to Vegas”) in Pop TV’s newest scripted comedy, FLORIDA GIRLS, which starts production in early October. Inspired by Chinn’s real life growing up on the West Coast of Florida, the 10-episode series follows four women who are forced to confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams.
“These four incredibly talented and funny women are poised to bring their friendship and shared experiences to life in such an intrepid and imaginative way,” says Justin Rosenblatt, EVP of Original Programming, Pop. “With this incredible cast in place, FLORIDA GIRLS promises to be a distinctive and relatable series produced by the powerhouse creative team of Lionsgate, 3 Arts, Jax and Laura.”
From Lionsgate Television, FLORIDA GIRLS is executive produced by 3 Arts Entertainment (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Parks and Recreation,” “The Mindy Project”), JAX Media (“Broad City,” “Younger,” “Search Party”) and Laura Chinn. Earlier this year, Lionsgate announced a partnership with 3 Arts.
