LOOK OUT NEW YORK, GEORGIA CHAMBERLIN HAS ARRIVED! RAVEN-SYMONÉ STARS IN ABC FAMILY'S NEW COMEDY, "STATE OF GEORGIA," PREMIERING ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29 AT 8:30PM ET/PT

Majandra Delfino and Loretta Devine Also Star; Series to Debut as Part of Network's One-Hour Comedy Block Following All New Episodes of "Melissa & Joey"

Burbank, CA (Wednesday, May 18, 2011) - Get ready New York! Georgia Chamberlin - and her quirky best friend, Jo - are taking the city by storm in "State of Georgia," an all-new original comedy premiering Wednesday, June 29 at 8:30PM ET/PT on ABC Family. The half-hour multi-cam comedy series stars Raven-Symoné as Georgia, an aspiring actress with a larger-than-life personality, and her science geek best friend, Jo (Majandra Delfino), who are trying to make professional and personal headway in New York City. The series also stars Loretta Devine ("Grey's Anatomy," "Jumping the Broom") as Aunt Honey. "State of Georgia" will follow the summer return of the network's hit comedy series, "Melissa & Joey" at 8:00PM ET/PT.

Georgia, a brash, confident Southern twenty-something, arrives in New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a famous actress. To make ends meet, she works various part-time jobs, accompanied (often through Georgia's sheer will) by her best friend and roommate, Jo. Cute but socially awkward, Jo has anxiety issues and lives for science. She, too, has ambitious dreams - to get into the Physics department at a top-tier university.

Loretta Devine stars as Aunt Honey, Georgia's sexy, southern aunt who allows Georgia and Jo to rent the downstairs of her lavish apartment while they're in New York pursuing their dreams. With her words of wisdom and fascinating stories about her many ex-husbands, Aunt Honey helps to keep Georgia and Jo on track while in the city.

An ABC Studios Production, "State of Georgia" will be executive-produced by Kirk J. Rudell and Jennifer Weiner, author of the best-selling novels Good in Bed and In Her Shoes. The pilot was directed by Ted Wass and was written by Jennifer Weiner & Jeff Greenstein.
