“Millions of kids and families around the world share the deep appreciation I have for the Disney brand and the kinds of imaginative, inspiring and relevant stories and interesting characters that reflect that brand and the world we live in,” Kory shared in a statement. “We are excited to kick off this creative endeavor with a show like Pretty Freekin Scary, which brings me back to my Disney Channel roots.”
Pretty Freekin Scary follows the adventures of Frankie Ripp, a 14-year-old girl who has a seemingly perfect life – great parents, annoying little brother, lifelong BFF – until she dies. After some heated debate in the Underworld with the Grim Reaper herself, Frankie is allowed to return home, but only if she’s accompanied by her new Underworld guardians, Pretty and Scary. Frankie will now have to adapt to her ‘once-dead’ status in the most challenging setting of all…Middle School.
The show stars Eliana Su’a as Frankie, Kyan Samuels as Pretty, Leah Mei Gold as Scary, Yonas Kibreab as Remy, and Emma Shannon as Nyx.
Production is currently underway with a debut set for Summer 2023 on Disney Channel and Disney+.
Deadline was first to report the exciting news.
