ABC Family (to be named Freeform in January) has announced the cast for the upcoming series FAMOUS IN LOVE. Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle, FAMOUS IN LOVE stars Bella Thorne as Paige, a college student who catches a big break when she additions for the starring role in a blockbuster movie. But now that she has a star-studded life, she has to figure out how to adapt and deal with the chemistry with her two co-leads and uncover the truth about what happened to a missing poster.
The network has also revealed the rest of the cast: “Joining Thorne is Carter Jenkins (THE FOLLOWING) as Rainer, the son of Hollywood royalty, who is one of Paige’s costars in the blockbuster movie. Jesse Henderson (FINDING CARTER) plays Jake, Paige’s best friend who becomes jealous when Paige starts hanging out with Rainer. Keith Powers (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, RECOVERY ROAD) will portray Jordan, a Hollywood bad boy, who stars with Rainer and Paige in the movie. He and Rainer have a complicated history, which is further heightened by the fact that both share chemistry with Paige. Niki Koss (SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE) stars as Alexis, one of Rainer’s old friends, who competes with Paige for the same role, and like most people on the show, has a secret. Georgie Flores (CSI) will play Cassandra, Paige’s roommate and close friend, who is straightforward and a good friend. Perrey Reeves (ENTOURAGE) will star as Nina, Rainer’s smart and cunning mother, who is half of one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples. Confident and manipulative, she does whatever it takes to make sure things go her son’s way. Pepi Sonuga joins the cast as Tangey, a beautiful pop star who mysteriously disappeared from the public eye, and previously involved with both Rainer and Jordan. Mark Valley (HUMAN TARGET) will recur as Grant Devon, Rainer’s father, who is a major figure in Hollywood.”
Production on FAMOUS IN LOVE begins this week. I. Marlene King (Executive Producer, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) and Serle wrote the pilot.
