Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform has handed out a 10-episode order to a new series from creator, writer, and comedian Josh Thomas.
31-year-old Thomas will also star in the series as Nicholas, a neurotic 25-year-old still living at home with his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of which has autism. He is not particularly helpful in raising his siblings, but when their dad becomes terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to hold it all together.
Thomas will also serve as showrunner on the comedy and will exec produces alongside David Martin, Jon Thoday and Richard Allen-Turner for Avalon Television.
“The absolute bestest thing about having a brand new TV show is getting to create new characters,” said Thomas. “I love the characters in this show, and I love how our cast depicts them—they are funny and kind and fascinating. I feel very grateful to Freeform for giving me the opportunity to introduce them to you.”
Tom Ascheim, president of Freeform said, “Both on and off screen, Josh is a master of creativity and bringing unique stories about underrepresented topics to television. At Freeform, we are committed to elevating narratives that resonate with today’s youth culture and this series is the perfect vehicle for that. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Josh to tell the story of this unconventional, quirky family that will spark many conversations around love, grief and adulting.”
