Production begins today on the ABC Family drama series pilot TERMINALES, starring Italia Ricci (UNNATURAL HISTORY), Mary Page Keller (ANOTHER WORLD), Vondie Curtis-Hall (ER), Aisha Dee (I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER), Richard Brancatisano (HOME AND AWAY), Abhi Sinha (The Social Network), Haley Ramm (WITHOUT A TRACE) and guest stars Barry Watson (7TH HEAVEN) and Rebecca Schull (SUITS).
Produced by Lionsgate and Televisa USA, the one-hour English language pilot follows twenty-something April (Ricci), a smart and quick witted aspiring journalist who is trying to work her way up the ladder at a Boston newspaper by impressing her hard-nosed editor, Lawrence (Curtis-Hall). When not pursuing the latest scoop, April tries to balance her ambitious career with her family – her widowed mom Sara (Keller), grandma Emma (Schull) and rebellious little sister Brenna (Ramm). Just as things start to look up at work, at home and on the romance front with co-worker Dominic (Brancatisano), April gets some devastating news from her estranged uncle George (Watson).
TERMINALES is based on Televisa’s successful Mexican drama of the same title and was written by Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz. Aaron Kaplan (GCB, TERRA NOVA), Fogel and Lefkowitz will serve as executive producers.
