'THE THING ABOUT HARRY'
Coming off the heels of Freeform's beloved programming events, 25 Days of Christmas and 31 Nights of Halloween, the network will launch a Valentine's Day-themed event, "Love However the FF You Want," for eight nights beginning SATURDAY, FEB. 8. Anchoring this new campaign is Freeform's first Valentine's Day original film, "The Thing About Harry," which premieres SATURDAY, FEB. 15, at 8 p.m. EST/PST. The stunt will also include a Valentine's Day-themed episode of "Good Trouble," and the Freeform premieres of "Deadpool," "Pitch Perfect 2" and "The Other Woman."
Directed by Peter Paige ("Good Trouble," "The Fosters"), "The Thing About Harry" tells the story of high school enemies, uber-jock Harry and out-and-proud Sam, who are forced to share a car ride to their Missouri hometown for a friend's engagement party on Valentine's Day. Things take a turn when Sam learns Harry has come out. Stuck spending the night together in a roadside motel, Harry and Sam begin to develop a deep friendship - with neither admitting a potential romance may be brewing - leaving them wondering if one road trip could change the rest of their lives.
"The Thing About Harry" stars Jake Borelli, Niko Terho, Britt Baron, Peter Paige and Karamo. The film is executive produced by Peter Paige, Greg Gugliotta ("Good Trouble," "The Fosters") and F.J. Denny. The film is written by Josh Senter and Peter Paige.
