Freeform revealed more about the upcoming programming in a press release:
“Freeform announced its January schedule, which includes the series premiere of the highly anticipated comedy Single Drunk Female, from Jenni Konner and Simone Finch, with a two-episode premiere on Thursday, Jan. 20, and new episodes of grown-ish on Thursday, Jan. 27. All titles will be available to stream on Hulu the day after the premiere.
Single Drunk Female will debut with back-to-back episodes on THURSDAY, JAN. 20, starting at 10 p.m. After its premiere, the series will air new episodes Thursdays at 10:30 p.m., following “grown-ish.” In this dramedy, a public flame-out at a New York media company forces 20-something alcoholic Samantha Fink to seize the only chance she has to sober up and avoid jail time: moving back home with her overbearing mother, Carol. Back in Greater Boston, Samantha restarts her life, working at the local grocery store while surrounded by all of the triggers that made her drink in the first place. Confronted with remnants of her old life, including run-ins with her perfect former best friend, who is now dating her ex, Samantha sets out on a path to move past her worst self and figure out her best self. Kinda. “Single Drunk Female” stars Sofia Black-D’Elia, Ally Sheedy, Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington and Garrick Bernard.
