Freeform has picked up to pilot an Asian coming of age story titled “AZNBBGRL.” The hourlong drama comes from Natalie Chaidez (The Flight Attendant), Dinh Thai (Wu-Tang: An American Saga), and producer Melvin Mar (Fresh Off the Boat).
Per Deadline: Set in the vibrant Vietnamese community of Little Saigon in Southern California’s Orange County, AZNBBGRL is a coming-of-age story about three Asian American teenagers driven by a desire to break free from generational expectations and carve out their own place in the world. Together, these three very different women find escape and form a bond deeper than family when they become entangled with a street gang that offers them a way out.
The project is written by Chaidez and Thai, who executive produce along with Kai Yu Wu (The Ghost Bride) and The Detective Agency’s Mar and Jake Kasdan.
20th Television is the studio.
