The PARTY OF FIVE Reboot Series Lands at Freeform
In case you weren't aware the popular 90s series Party of Five is getting a reboot and that reboot has landed at Freeform. The reboot is described as being immigration-themed and the drama will revolve around a family of Mexican-American siblings.
The series will follow the five Buendias children "as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico."
The original show revolved around on the five Salinger siblings who become orphans after their parents are killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. The reboot comes from the creators of the original series Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman.
Keyser and Lippman will write the pilot, along with Michal Zebede (Castle, Devious Maids), who is a first-generation American writer with Costa Rican and Panamanian roots. Rodrigo Garcia is set to direct.
I enjoyed watching the original series when it first aired. This one is definitely going to have a different vibe but I'll check it out. What do you all think about the direction they are taking the reboot?
