December 11, 2015

Disney-owned cable net ABC Family has commissioned relationship series The Letter.

Produced by Leftfield Entertainment-owned Sirens Media, each episode will showcase four friends as they anonymously draw names and write the selected person a constructive and honest letter that details what they believe needs to be altered in the reader for them to become better versions of themselves.

The series will track each reader over a week as they attempt to follow the letter’s every suggestion on how to improve. Episodes will culminate in a “dramatic and emotionally charged” reveal.

ABC Family will rebrand to Freeform in January as part of an overall plan to double the amount of original programming the network commissions over the next four years.

Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton and Lucilla D’Agostino serve as executive producers for the series.

The Letter is slated to begin production in 2016.
