ABC FAMILY ANNOUNCES THE CAST OF ITS UNSCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES "THE VINEYARD," PREMIERING ON TUESDAY, JULY 23rd at 10:00PM ET/PT

Burbank, CA (June 24, 2013) - ABC Family announces the young, sexy cast of its new unscripted drama series, "The Vineyard," premiering on Tuesday, July 23rd, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Set against the idyllic backdrop of Martha's Vineyard, MA, and featuring the island's iconic Black Dog, "The Vineyard" follows a mix of eleven locals and "wash-ashores" working, living and playing together for the summer. As summer on the island gets underway, everyone is at a significant crossroads in their personal lives as they juggle romance, friendships, rivalries and career choices.

Meet the cast:

The "Wash-ashores" (Definition: "Wash-ashores;" slang, noun: people who live on the island for the summer: wash-ashores roll in with the tide and roll out with the tide)

Katie: Beautiful and gregarious, Katie arrives on the island at a defining moment in her personal and professional life; not only is she trying to reconcile her fashion career with her desire to make a difference in the world, but she isn't sure if her boyfriend of 4 years is the man she wants to be with for the rest of her life. Katie is using the summer to clear her head and figure out if her boyfriend is her true love or if it's time to move on.

Luis: Charming, spontaneous and impulsive, Lou's bad-boy persona hides his sensitive soul. A hopeless romantic and chivalrous to the core, Lou arrives on the island for the summer determined to find the girl of his dreams.

Jon: The All-American pre-med student, Jonathan has this summer to let loose before he has to focus all of his attention on school. A self -described "player," Jon loves women but doesn't want to be tied down. He won't let anything distract him from becoming the first doctor in his family, but could a potential summer fling turn into something more and lead him away from his goal?

Emily: Sophisticated and opinionated, Emily knows what she wants in life- a successful man to take care of her. Emily is convinced there's no better place to find him than during summer on Martha's Vineyard, and her stunning features and flawless physique guarantee she'll get any man she wants. Emily thinks she knows what will make her happy, but her time on the island may surprise her.

Daniel: Outgoing and upbeat with a great sense of humor, Daniel loves throwing parties and hopes to turn his passion into a career. He's great at bringing people together and making connections but when it comes to his own love life, Daniel just can't seem to find the right girl.

Taelyr: Shy and inexperienced, Taelyr missed out on the wild teen years; after her father passed away, she needed to grow up fast and take care of those around her. Taeylr's summer on the Vineyard will undoubtedly help her come out of her shell and into her own.

Sophi: A Miami Venezuelan, Sophi is a gifted singer who dreams of a career in music. She is extremely motivated and hopes her time on the Vineyard will put her one step closer to her goal. As she looks for inspiration on the island, Sophi will discover some unexpected things about herself along the way.

The Locals

Cat: Rebellious Cat is still trying to decide what she wants to do with her life, an issue that usually puts her at odds with her mom. She has a history with Ben, but is determined not to have a relationship this summer. As she struggles to find her identity, Cat is torn between exploring life off the Vineyard or staying on the island and developing her artistic talents.

Ben: The strong, silent heartthrob, Ben's life has been in a holding pattern since he returned to the island after leaving the Coast Guard. Determined to move out of his parents' place, Ben turns his attention towards finding a job but encounters some unexpected drama when Cat reenters his life.

Jackie: An aspiring writer, Jackie left the bright lights of Los Angeles to move back to the Vineyard and be closer to her ailing mother. Quick to fall hard for guys, Jackie often finds herself broken-hearted. Will Jackie continue to chase love or listen to her mom's advice and finally let it find her?

Gabby: Level-headed with a take-charge attitude, Gabby is the confidant for her two best friends, Jackie and Katie. Often caught between them, her well-intentioned advice inevitably constantly leads to drama. As she begins another summer on the island, Gabby is excited to embrace the vibrant opportunities this season will undoubtedly bring.
