FOUR BESTIES ARE ABOUT TO GET REAL ON THE SERIES PREMIERE
OF 'THE LETTER' AIRING OCTOBER 11 ON FREEFORM
Zelda Williams ('Dead of Summer') Narrates
What would you say if you could write an anonymous letter to your friend? Four besties are about to find out on the series premiere of new unscripted series "The Letter," airing TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on Freeform.
In the premiere episode, titled "Bridge and Tunnel," four best friends from New Jersey who met in college and have been inseparable ever since decide to take on the letter challenge. They will each draw names and anonymously write to the selected person a thoughtful, yet totally honest letter outlining their opinion of what needs to be changed in order to improve and transform their friend's life for the better.
· Jill is the outgoing one of the group, but her friends are concerned that she spends way too much time obsessed with her looks.
· Amy is the shy one, who doesn't make any effort to meet people, shielding her heart after a toxic relationship.
· Lekwon, the flirty one who is usually juggling four guys at once, can't seem to settle down or be comfortable with her own company.
· Rory is the drama queen who schedules her entire life around her two dogs, often breaking plans with her friends to spend time with her pets.
When each girl receives their letter, they are required to follow all of the letter's instructions for one week. Rory has to spend time without her dogs; Amy must go out on a blind date; Lekwon needs to delete all her dating apps; and Jill faces why she's so concerned with her appearance.
"The Letter" is a bold, new relationship show that asks the simple question: "If you could anonymously tell your best friend in a letter the things that he or she really needed to hear, would you do it?" In each stand-alone episode, four friends draw names and anonymously write to the selected person a thoughtful, yet totally honest letter outlining their opinion of what needs to be changed in order to improve and transform their friend's life for the better. For one week, each "reader" must follow all the rules and instructions outlined in the letter - culminating in a dramatic and emotionally charged meeting where the authors of each letter reveal themselves to their best friends. The series is narrated by actress Zelda Williams ("Dead of Summer").
