Freeform has put into development a drama series produced by The Chainsmokers, the network announced on Monday.
Titled “Demo,” the series follows a 20-something musician who “dares to leave behind her struggling indie rock band and her working class family to try writing pop songs in Los Angeles,” according to the network. “Though at first she’s eager to shed her past, she soon discovers that the best songs tell the deepest truths–if only she can find the strength to tell hers.”
Alex Pall and Drew Taggart will serve as executive producers on the project via their Kick the Habit banner, alongside Dan Marcus and Adam Alpert. “Switched at Birth” and “Madam Secretary” alum Joy Gregory will write and co-executive produce.
Greg Silverman, Paul Shapiro and Cara Fano of Stampede Ventures will also executive produce.
Pall and Taggart launched their production company late last year, enlisting Marcus, a former UTA agent, to serve as president and chief operating officer. Alpert, the duo’s manager, is CEO. They previously announced plans to develop a feature based on their 2017 single “Paris” for TriStar, with the screenplay to be written by Mickey Rapkin.
Gregory is represented by Schachter Entertainment. The Chainsmokers are represented by CAA
