Abc Family To Bring 10 Things I Hate About You & Ruby And The Rockits To Tv


Recommended Posts

Small-screen version of 10 Things I Hate About You, and Ruby and The Rockits, a comedy featuring Cassidy brothers get green lights.


ABC Family is all grown up! The Disney sub-brand has come a long way thanks to its slate of original programming. Greek, Kyle XY, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager are all bona fide hits, so the network doesn't see any reason to slow down.

A pair of projects have been given the OK by ABC Family to shoot some pilots: 10 Things I Hate About You and Ruby and The Rockits.

Anyone familiar with the late 1990s boom of high-school comedy movies will recognize the title . The film, which starred a young Heath Ledger, is getting the TV treatment for ABC Family. The comedy will follow a pair of very different sisters as they traverse their new high school.

Ruby and The Rockits digs up the Cassidy Brothers--Shaun, Patrick, and David--and plops them in a comedy about a former teen idol named Patrick who gets an unexpected visit from his still-rocking brother. While bro still hangs on to the teenage dream of rockin' and rollin', Patrick must help raise his daughter Ruby.

Neither series has been given an air date yet. ABC Family is also bringing the new comedies Roommates and Sophie into its fold early next year.
