POP TV ORDERS ORIGINAL SCRIPTED COMEDY "FLORIDA GIRLS," FEATURING FOUR WOMEN WHOSE FRIENDSHIP TRIUMPHS OVER ADVERSITY

"Florida Girls" Creator/Executive Producer/Star Laura Chinn ("The Mick") Teams with Lionsgate, JAX Media and 3 Arts Entertainment to Produce 10-Episode Television Series Inspired by Her Life

LOS ANGELES - June 12, 2018 - Four girls living in Small Town, Florida confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams, in FLORIDA GIRLS, an original scripted half-hour comedy commissioned by Pop TV, a network owned by CBS Corporation and Lionsgate. FLORIDA GIRLS heads into production this fall.

Lionsgate, which recently acquired a majority ownership of 3 Arts Entertainment ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Parks and Recreation," "The Mindy Project"), will produce FLORIDA GIRLS alongside 3 Arts and JAX Media ("Broad City," "Younger," "Search Party"). Series creator and executive producer Laura Chinn ("The Mick") will star in the 10-episode series, which is based on Chinn's real-life.

Lilly Burns of JAX Media directed the pilot and serves as an executive producer of the series. Tony Hernandez of JAX Media, and Oly Obst and Josh Lieberman of 3 Arts Entertainment also serve as executive producers.

"I am so excited to make FLORIDA GIRLS with Pop," said Chinn. "I grew up in Florida and have always wanted to share my wildly fun and truly insane experiences in a state that is so much more than just: Florida Man on Bath Salts Head-Butts Car, Slaps Fire Chief."

FLORIDA GIRLS follows a quartet of female friends who are partying under the poverty line while navigating very relatable problems as they try to better their situations. Living in a dilapidated beach town full of alcoholics, these street-wise women haphazardly attempt to find self-worth and learn to "adult" in a society that deems poor, uneducated women as valueless. Their backbone ultimately lies within their tight-knit, non-judgmental and loving friendship.

"This hilarious scripted series is both bold and truthful, shining a light on four females whose friendship prevails over the sometimes unfortunate cards they are dealt," said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Pop. "With Lionsgate, Laura, JAX and 3 Arts, this dynamite team is hard at work to bring these Clearwater characters to life in this self-reflective comedy."
