Not since “Buffy” have I been particularly interested in televised teen-age shenanigans, but there’s a new girl on the block named Gena Marshall. And in the upcoming dark drama “The Freshman”, she leads viewers on a journey through the cliques and social standards of your not-so-modern high school. Ever hear “Don’t trust the new girl“? In Gena’s case it seems to be excellent advice because as soon as she shows up, her classmates start disappearing.
Filming of the one-hour pilot for “The Freshman” is set to start in Los Angeles in February, 2009. Kellan Rhude (pictured, Return to Sleepaway Camp), Aaron Perilo, Debra Wilson, and Janet Linn have already been cast with more to come. The pilot is being directed by Charles Clemmons from a script penned by Jillian Ashe.
Along with being shopped to cable networks upon completion, “The Freshman” will be available for download on iTunes. No other details on the project are available, but once we learn more, we’ll certainly pass it on!
