Wendy Melvoin & Lisa Coleman (HeroesDangerous MindsNurse JackieCrossing Jordan) are scoring the new Freeform original series Cruel Summer. The show is created by Bert V. Royal (Easy A, Recovery Road) and stars Olivia Holt, Chiara Aurelia, Froy Gutierrez, Harley Quinn Smith, Michael Landes, Allius Barnes, Blake Lee and Brooklyn Sudano. The drama takes place over three summers in the 90s when a beautiful and popular teen goes missing, and follows a seemingly unrelated girl who transforms from a sweet and awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town, eventually becoming the most despised person in America. Royal is also executive producing the project with Iron Ocean Productions’ Jessica Biel & Michelle Purple (The Sinner, Limetown). Max Winkler (Flower, Jungleland) has directed and executive produced the pilot episode. Cruel Summer will premiere on April 20 on Freeform.

Wendy & Lisa have also recently scored the first season of Netflix’s Firefly Lane, which premiered last month and is now available to stream on Netflix.
