Sofia Black-D’Elia to Star in Freeform Pilot ‘Single Drunk Female’

The pilot marks the first order for new network president Tara Duncan.

Freeform is set to explore the life of a Single Drunk Female.

The younger-skewing, Disney-owned cable network has handed out a pilot order for Single Drunk Female and tapped Sofia Black-D’Elia (Showtime’s Your Honor) as its title character.

From corporate sibling 20th Television, the pilot revolves around Samantha Fink, who is forced to move back home with her “smother” to sober up and avoid jail time. But when her childhood BFF reveals surprising news, Samantha realizes she can no longer qualify as a party girl — she’s a walking disaster.

Simone Finch (ABC’s The Connors) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Jenni Konner (HBO’s Camping, Girls) and Phil Traill (NBC’s Good Girls). Leslye Headland (Netflix’s Russian Doll, Disney+’s upcoming Star Wars series) will direct and exec produce the pilot. Single Drunk Female is the first project to come from Konner’s overall deal with the former Fox 21, which was absorbed earlier this month with fellow Disney studio 20th TV.

Single Drunk Female is also the first pilot order to come from Freeform’s newly installed president Tara Duncan since she took over for Tom Ascheim earlier this year.

D’Elia will play Samantha, a writer who must leans on her mom for help. Ally Sheedy (High Art, The Breakfast Club) will play Carol, an overbearing but absent parent who is sick of sending Samantha to rehab. Rebecca Henderson (Russian Doll) will play the lesbian who works as a greeter at AA. Sasha Compere (HBO Max’s Love Life) will play Brit, Samantha’s former BFF. Lily Mae Harrington (Some Freaks) is Felicia, Samantha’s drinking buddy. Garrick Bernard rounds out the cast as James, a drunk who works in the tech industry.
