FREEFORM BEGINS PRODUCTION ON JOSH THOMAS' 'EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE OKAY' PILOT

KAYLA CROMER, MAEVE PRESS AND ADAM FAISON JOIN AS SERIES REGULARS

Today, Freeform officially begins production on the pilot "Everything's Gonna Be Okay" in Los Angeles. Written by Josh Thomas, the creator of the critically acclaimed, heartwarming dramedy-series "Please Like Me," the half-hour comedy pilot introduces Nicholas (played by Thomas), a neurotic 25-year-old who suddenly has to grapple with the loss of his father while figuring out how to be a guardian to his two teenage half-sisters.

Joining Thomas as series regulars are newcomers Kayla Cromer ("South of Hell") who will portray Nicholas' 17-year old half-sister Matilda, a witty, wide-eyed musician who is on the autism spectrum; Maeve Press ("Theresa Is a Mother") will portray 14-year-old comedic oddball Genevieve, who is the youngest of the siblings and the most dramatic; and Adam Faison ("Liberty Crossing") rounds out the cast portraying Alex, Nicholas' love interest who finds himself in the middle of family drama.

Thomas created the concept, wrote and stars in the pilot with David Martin, Jon Thoday, and Richard Allen-Turner serving as executive producers for Avalon Television. Stephanie Swedlove and Kevin Whyte also serve as executive producers. Produced by Avalon Television and Freeform Studios, it will be distributed internationally by Avalon Distribution. The pilot is directed by Rebecca Thomas ("Stranger Things").

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."
