ABC ORDERS SECOND INSTALLMENTS OF ABCd SERIES 'FOREVER 31,' 'I CAN FIND $3000 IN YOUR HOME' AND 'NEWBORN MOMS' FOR THE NEWLY RE-LAUNCHED ABC APP

Deals Also Completed With Emmy Winner and Oscar Nominee Viola Davis' JuVEe Productions and Best Selling Author and Actress Jenny Mollen

ABC Entertainment is today announcing that it is ordering additional installments of its new ABCd series "Forever 31," created by and starring comedian Iliza Shlesinger; "I Can Find $3000 In Your Home," featuring eBay millionaire Linda Lightman; and "Newborn Moms," created by and starring Aurora Browne and Nadine Djoury. Additionally, the network has acquired "American Koko," from Diarra Kilpatrick and Viola Davis' JuVEe Productions, and "I Like You Just the Way I Am," from New York Times best-selling author and actress Jenny Mollen. ABCd series are exclusive to the newly re-launched ABC app for desktop, mobile and connected TV devices.

In "Forever 31," Shlesinger and her friends struggle with the indignities of dead-end jobs, hangovers, dating, infidelity and all the rest of the absurdities of modern adulthood. Produced by Avalon Television, Inc.

eBay millionaire Linda Lightman hosts "I Can Find $3000 In Your Home." Lightman believes that everyone has at least 52 items totaling at least $3000 dollars in their homes. She's going to households around the country to find the hidden treasures tucked under the bed and in the back of closets and show you how to make money with insider tips about the online resale value of your stuff.

"Newborn Moms" is the comedic story of what it's like to be a new parent struggling with sleepless nights, self doubt and swollen boobs. Created by Browne and Djoury, the series follows two moms, Rosie and Julia, as they reconcile the kind of mothers they thought they would be with the kind they actually are. Produced by Avalon Television, Inc. and Don Ferguson Productions.

The network also acquired "American Koko," which follows a satirical agency that solves sticky racial situations with sensitivity, vulnerability, honesty and humor. The series is created by and stars Diarra Kilpatrick and is produced by Viola Davis' and Julius Tennon's JuVEe Productions. Originally distributed via Kilpatrick's YouTube channel, American Koko received the Best Web Series Award from the American Black Film Festival and Essence Magazine has listed it among its: "Web Series You Should Be Watching." Kilpatrick was recently selected as one of the 11 2015 honorees of the WGA's Writer's Access Program for her drama pilot "The Dirty Dozen."

Based on Mollen's self-penned best-selling memoir, "I Like You Just the Way I Am," is a single-camera comedy chronicling the misadventures of a woman who fully indulges her inner crazy-person. She leads her life acting on impulse and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form. Luckily her friends and family, including her husband actor Jason Biggs, are always along for the ride. Mollen writes and stars in the series that she will also executive produce alongside Jamie Tarses ("Happy Endings") and Sony Pictures Television.

ABC re-launched its app July 13, marking a major evolution of its streaming service. In addition to the current on-air shows, the network added ABCd short-form series, full seasons of 38 "throwback" shows, and a redesigned user interface exclusively for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV that improves discovery and navigation.

In addition to "Forever 31," "I Can Find $3000 In Your Home" and "Newborn Moms," current ABCd series include: "All My Gay Friends are Getting Married," "Boondoogle," "Tastemade's "Get Cookin'"and "On The Record."
