ABC Family announces slate

ABC Family just announced its upcoming slate of TV shows at the network’s upfront presentation in New York. Among the shows are:

Make It or Break It, a one-hour scripted drama set in the world of competitive gymnastics, starring Frasier’s Peri Gilpin and Full House’s Candace Cameron Bure. The show will follow a group of teen Olympic hopefuls in training. The pilot was directed by Dawson’s Creek’s Steve Miner and the cast also includes Chelsea Hobbs (The Lords of Dogtown), Ayla Kell (CSI: Miami), Josie Loren (17 Again), and Zachary Burr Abel (The Secret Life of the American Teenager). It premieres on Monday, June 22 at 9 pm.

10 Things I Hate About You, a half-hour high school series helmed by Gil Junger, who also directed the 1999 film of the same name (the film was also notable for providing Heath Ledger’s breakout role). 10 Things stars Lindsey Shaw (Aliens in America), Meaghan Jette Martin (Camp Rock), Ethan Peck (Tennessee), and comedy veteran Larry Miller. It will premiere on Tuesday, July 7 at 8 pm.

Ruby & the Rockits, a half-hour comedy executive produced by Shaun Cassidy. The show traces the post-stardom lives of two teen idol brothers set on making a comeback. The show stars The Partridge Family’s David Cassidy and premieres on Tuesday, July 21 at 8:30 pm.
