ABC Family has renewed comedy “Young and Hungry” for a second season. Additionally, it has ordered its first procedural drama, entitled “Stitches.”
“Stitches” comes from writer Jeffrey A. Schechter (“Overruled”). It follows a young woman recruited into a covert government agency to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave.
Schechter will serve as an executive producer alongside Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken.
“Young & Hungry,” which stars Emily Osment as feisty personal chef Gabi, was renewed after ranking as basic cable’s No. 1 telecast in its time period in Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34, as well as other key demos.
The show is produced by David Holden, Ashley Tisdale, Jessica Rhoades, Caryn Lucas, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum in association with CBS Television Studios. Gabi Moskowitz, a San Francisco based food blogger of BrokeAssGourmet.com, contributed to the development of this project. Along with Osment, the show stars Jonathan Sadowski, Aimee Carrero, Kym Whitley and Rex Lee.
ABC Family has also confirmed that the Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth series, “Mystery Girls,” is cancelled, though the cancellation was reported by multiple media outlets earlier in September.
