FREEFORM GREENLIGHTS PILOT FROM 'THE AMERICANS' DUO

New Drama Hails from Creator/Producer Steve Lerner, Producers Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg and FX Productions

Today, Freeform announced a pilot order for "Breckman Rodeo" (working title) from creator/writer Steve Lerner and the executive producers of the award-winning drama "The Americans," Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields. Fields and Weisberg are executive producers, and Lerner is Co-Executive Producer of the pilot, which is produced by FX Productions.

"Breckman Rodeo" (working title) is an ensemble drama about a group of young rodeo riders in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The show centers on Ashley, a rodeo-as-hell sparkplug who refuses to stay within the lines that have been drawn for her, and her boyfriend Brant, a rodeo prodigy torn between a content, quiet life and the rocky climb to superstardom. Brant, Ashley and their friends will have to reconcile the traditional values of their sport and their upbringing with the changing realities of the 21st century.

"We're incredibly excited to partner with Freeform, FX Productions and the brilliant Steve Lerner on his one-of-a-kind coming of age gem, 'Breckman Rodeo' (working title)," said Fields and Weisberg. "When Steve, who grew up in Cheyenne, first showed us his amazing script, we asked him if there was really such a thing as a high school rodeo team. Steve has been bringing us up to speed ever since. His show is a heartfelt look at teenage life in Cheyenne - familiar to some, not to others, but sure to move and surprise everyone."

"Growing up in Wyoming, I loved going to the rodeo," added Lerner. "I'm excited to bring the stories and people of my hometown to the screen. Freeform, FXP and the J's (Joe and Joel) have been wonderful collaborators, and I'm thrilled to shoot this pilot with them."

Freeform's growing slate of original scripted dramas includes new hits "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" and "Siren," and the critically-acclaimed series "The Bold Type."
