GIFT YOUR FRIENDS WITH A FREE DVD SET OF ABC FAMILY'S HIT DRAMA SERIES, "THE FOSTERS"

Gifting Program starts Thanksgiving Day

Burbank, CA (November 25, 2013) - Fans of the hit ABC Family drama, "The Fosters," can gift their friends this holiday season with a free DVD of the series. Beginning on Thursday, November 28, "The Fosters" fans can go to "The Fosters" Facebook page and order a limited-edition 10-episode DVD set to be shipped to friends who have not yet discovered the critically-acclaimed series. ABC Family will be producing 10,000 DVDs of the series' first 10 episodes for giveaway. "The Fosters" returns with new episodes on Monday, January 13, 2014, at 9pm ET/PT on ABC Family.

"We know the number one way to impact consumer behavior is through peer word-of-mouth. What better way to bring new viewers to 'The Fosters' than by giving our dedicated fans the means to share the series directly with their friends, perfectly timed to a season for gift giving and sharing." said Michelle Walenz, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Creative and Branding, ABC Family. "Who doesn't love to receive a gift in the mail?"

"The Fosters" is a one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Stef Foster, a dedicated police officer, and her partner Lena Adams Foster, a school Vice Principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef's biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon, and their adopted twins Mariana and Jesus. Their lives are disrupted in unexpected ways when Lena meets Callie, a guarded teen with an abusive past who has spent her life in and out of foster homes. Lena and Stef warily welcome Callie and her younger brother Jude into their home hoping to provide them with the guidance and nurturing they so desperately need.

Over time, Callie and Jude open up about losing their parents and the hardships they suffered while in previous foster homes. Callie grows especially close to Brandon, but their mutual attraction causes jealousy and concern since foster children are not allowed to have intimate relationships in the same household. When Callie finally gives in to those feelings, she jeopardizes Stef and Lena's offer to make her and Jude a permanent part of the family. Not wanting to ruin Jude's chances of finally finding a stable, loving home, Callie runs away.

Winner of 2013's Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Breakout Show, "The Fosters" is executive-produced by Jennifer Lopez, ("American Idol," "What to Expect When You're Expecting," "The Back-Up Plan") and created by Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige ("Queer As Folk"), who also serve as executive producers and writers, along with Joanna Johnson ("Make it or Break it"). "The Fosters" stars Teri Polo ("Meet the Parents") as Stef Foster, Sherri Saum ("In Treatment") as Lena Adams Foster, Jake T. Austin ("Wizards of Waverly Place") as Jesus Foster, Hayden Byerly ("Parenthood") as Jude Jacob, David Lambert ("Aaron Stone") as Brandon Foster, Maia Mitchell ("Teen Beach Movie") as Callie Jacob, Danny Nucci ("Titanic") as Mike Foster and Cierra Ramirez ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager") as Mariana Foster.
