THEFUTONCRITIC.COM — ABC Family begins production today on the drama series pilot “Socio,” starring Avan Jogia (“Victorious), Maddie Hasson (“The Finder”), Kylie Bunbury (“Prom”), Kimberly Quinn (“Terriers”) and Denise Richards (“Two and a Half Men”). Also recently cast in the project is Sam Robards (“Treme,” “Gossip Girl”). Kathy Najimy (“Make it or Break It”) and Grey Damon (“The Nine Lives of Chloe King”) have also been cast as guest stars.
Shooting in New York, “Socio” follows Danny (Jogia), who has returned to town after serving five years in custody for murdering his aunt when he was 11. Admitting his guilt, but stubbornly refusing to discuss his motive, Danny returns to a hostile reception and a media firestorm. Ostracized by his peers, Danny reconnects with his former best friends Jo (Hasson) and Lacey (Bunbury) who are still struggling to put the past behind them. But when another student is murdered, suspicion falls on Danny and the question remains, is Danny a serial slayer, a “socio,” or is he a victim with a shocking secret?
Richards portrays Karen, Danny’s mother, who once ruled the town’s social scene, but who now struggles to put on a brave face with her son returning home under a cloud of scandal and shame. Robards plays Kyle, the town sheriff, and Jo’s father, who clashes with his wife Tess (Quinn) over their daughter’s renewed friendship with Danny, convinced Danny is a hardened killer. Najimy will guest as Mrs. Fisk, a charismatic, eccentric psychology teacher and Damon plays Archie, Lacey’s hotheaded boyfriend, who is not pleased by her renewed friendship with Danny.
Gavin Polone (“Gilmore Girls,” “”Zombieland,” “Jane by Design”) is the executive producer of the pilot, which was written by Adam Milch (“Greek”). The pilot is produced by Prodco, Inc.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER — ‘The Finder’s’ Maddie Hasson, ‘Prom’s’ Kylie Bunbury to Star in Gavin Polone’s ABC Family Pilot
The duo will star in “Socio,” an hourlong drama revolving around an alleged sociopath who reconnects with his two former childhood best friends.
ABC Family has found two friends for an alleged murderer.
The Finder’s Maddie Hasson and Prom’s Kylie Bunbury have been tapped to co-star in the network’s Gavin Polone drama pilot Socio, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Socio revolves around Danny, a charismatic 16-year-old alleged sociopath who reconnects with his two childhood best friends when he returns to his hometown to attend high school. However, once he arrives, he finds himself the prime suspect when a fellow student is murdered.
Hasson will play Jo, an offbeat and tough yet vulnerable girl who was Danny’s childhood friend who, after discovering the body of his slain aunt shortly after she was murdered, became a social outcast. She becomes his biggest supporter even after he faces new allegations.
Bunbury, meanwhile, will portray Lacey, a former tomboy and once Jo and Danny’s best friend, she has found the popularity that eluded Jo by putting the past behind her — including ditching her former friend.
Polone, whose Jane By Design was canceled at the network after one season, will executive produce with Greek’s Adam Milch on board to pen the script and co-exec produce.
Hasson, who played Willa on Fox’s short-lived Bones spinoff The Finder, is repped by Coast to Cost Talent Group, STW Talent and the Beddingfield Co.; Bunbury whose credits also include The Sitter, is with ICM Partners and Principal Entertainment.
Socio is one of two pilots the network picked up in August and should it go to series, it would join a lineup that includes Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game, among others.
