ABC Family has ordered a third season of the drama “The Fosters,” the network said Tuesday.
It has also ordered the reality show “Job or No Job.” The new series will follow one young adult per episode on his/her journey to land a first job. Each job seeker will go on three interviews, and we will watch the intense ride to find out if he or she lands three, two, one or zero offers.
“The Fosters,” which counts Jennifer Lopez as an executive producer, centers on a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological teenage kids being raised by two moms. Over the summer, the series averaged 2.6 million total viewers, with 1.3 million in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. “The Fosters” will premiere new episodes from its second season starting Jan. 19. Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are among the series’ stars.
“Job or No Job” is produced by Studio Lambert/All3Media America, with Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Greg Goldman and Sara Quick executive producing.
“We are thrilled to be making more episodes of ‘The Fosters’ — a show that has not only garnered critical acclaim and numerous awards but resonates with our passionate and committed audience,” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. “‘Job or No Job’ is also an important addition to our growing reality slate that will appeal to anyone who has ever gone on a job interview.”
