Jennifer Gwartz and Jon Harmon Feldman have sold two projects to Freeform under their Random Hill Productions banner. Hourlong drama LOST BOYS AND TECHNICOLOR GIRLS based on an upcoming book by Alice Berman, and a half-hour comedy titled EX-BEST based on the web series. The project comes from Random Hill’s overall deal at ABC Studios and will be produced by cable/streaming division ABC Signature Studios in association with Random Hill.
Lost Boys and Technicolor Girls was adapted by Jake Coburn and centers on 18-year old Thomas Zimmer who went missing seven years ago, diving a tight-knight group of friends on Manhattan’s exclusive Upper East Side. Seven years later, Thomas Zimmer turns up dead, launching a high-profile murder investigation that brings this group of twenty-somethings back together as murder suspects, rekindling old friendships and old flames, and threatening to expose their deepest darkest secrets. Coburn, Gwartz, and Feldman will executive produce.
Ex-Best is based on the web series of the same name created by Diana Gettinger and Monica Hewes, who will write the TV series Version. The series follows two women post friend-breakup as they try to do the conscious uncoupling thing without physically uncoupling. As the rift ripples into their personal and professional lives. Gwartz and Feldman serve as executive producers, while Hewes and Gettinger will co-executive produce.
Michael Greenwald from Random Hill brought in both projects and will oversee their development.
