Freeform Orders Comedy Alone Together to Series


BURBANK: Freeform has given a series order to the scripted comedy Alone Together, which comes from The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

Alone Together is about two twentysomething friends who yearn to be accepted by the vain and status-obsessed culture. The half-hour, single-camera show stars Esther Povitsky (Lady Dynamite) and Benji Aflalo (Not Safe with Nikki Glaser), who serve as writers and executive producers alongside Eben Russell (Girl Boss). Samberg, Taccone, Schaffer, Billy Rosenberg and Hunter Covington are also exec producers.

“We are so proud of this series as it perfectly embodies the evolving Freeform brand and our dedication to programming for the twentysomething viewer,” said Karey Burke, the executive VP of programming and development at Freeform. “Our audience will quickly fall in love as we did with real-life best friends Esther and Benji, who navigate a world of perfect 10s as self-proclaimed 6s.”
