Netflix is expanding its young adult line-up with new mother-daughter drama Ginny & Georgia.
The coming-of-age series star Antonia Gentry and Brianne Howey (The Passenger) as the eponymous pair: 15-year-old Ginny and her 30-year-old mother, Georgia.
After years moving around, the series follows them as Georgia looks to put down roots in picturesque New England and give the family a normal life. For Ginny, who often feels more mature than her mother, that means a new school and everything that comes with it, not to mention complicated love interests.
Series regulars include Diesel La Torraca, Jennifer Robertson, Felix Mallard, Sara Waisglass, Scott Porter and Raymond Ablack.
La Torraca will play cousin Austin, Robertson will play working mum Ellen, a working mum, Mallard will play bad boy Marcus, Waisglass will play popular girl Maxine, and Porter will play political hopeful Mayor Paul Randolph. Ablack will play Joe, the owner of the local restaurant.
The series is written and created by Sarah Lampert, who penned it while working at Sunshine Sachs subsidiary Madica Productions. Madica brought the script to to Critical Content, where they have a first look deal, and it was then presented to Dynamic Television, which pitched it to Netflix. Criminal Minds veteran Debra J. Fisher will serve as showrunner and Anya Adams, who has helmed episodes of Bless This Mess and Fresh Off the Boat, will direct the first two episodes.
