"Girls Code" is created by Rosenstock, who also serves as executive producer alongside Feig and Jessie Henderson for Feigco Entertainment. Joy Gorman Wettels ("13 Reasons Why"), who brought the original notion to Feigco and Rosenstock, and Steve Golin serve as executive producers on behalf of Anonymous Content. Feigco's Dan Magnante will serve as co-producer.

Freeform's growing slate of original scripted comedies includes smash hit "grown-ish," executive produced by Kenya Barris and starring Yara Shahidi; critically-acclaimed breakout series "The Bold Type"; buddy comedy "Alone Together" from The Lonely Island; and fan favorite "Young & Hungry."
