Summer of ANGST !
Come one, come all & welcome to the summer of ANGST!
Summer 2013 may be the summer that ABC Family officially takes over when it comes to teens & angst on television. The CW seems to have officially passed the ball by picking up new pilots that are all more horror/fantasy/Sci-Fi, leaving new(ish) ABC Family the ability to capitalize on the still strong teen demographics.
ABC Family is debuting 2 summertime shows this season, adding to it’s impressive roster of angst filled programming that includes; Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, Switched at Birth and Bunheads, the new shows PLL spinoff Ravenswood, TWISTED & THE FOSTERS look to fit in nicely.
Time is going to tell which shows make the cut long term but with the success of Pretty Little Liars & The Lying Game it’s safe to assume TEEN ANGST TV isn’t going anywhere!
