ABC Family is adding new originals this year to join its slate of returning favorites.
The cable channel is planning to premiere the comedy series "Greek" and tha nimated series "Slacker Cats" along with 10 new original movies for the year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Greek," set to premiere in July, centers on college freshman Rusty (Jacob Zachar), who's determined not to continue on his bookish geekiness from his high school days. His solution is to enter the Greek system, but his older sister Casey (Spencer Grammer), a sorority siren, isn't too thrilled to have her little brother encroaching on her territory.
A month later, "Slacker Cats" will premiere. The channel's first animated series centers on two rather dim tabbies named Buckley and Eddie.
For its original movies, three have already been planned. "Holiday in Handcuffs," stars Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez, "Snow Globe" revolves around a woman who enters the world of her grandmother's snow globe, and "Nature of the Beast" is a Halloween-planned werewolf movie starring "Ugly Betty's" Eric Mabius and "American Pie's" Eddie Kaye Thomas.
Also on tap for the channel is the return of "Kyle XY," "Lincoln Heights," "Wildfire" and "Fallen." ABC Family also acquired more recent episodes of "That '70s Show" and "America's Funniest Home Videos" and will host the basic cable premiere of "The Incredibles."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
