Last Summer has been ordered to series. 

Freedom announced that it has picked up the Jessica Biel produced series Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Last Summer hails from writer and executive producer Bert V. Royal. Max Winkler directed the pilot. Also producing in addition to Biel is Michelle Purple under their Iron Ocean Productions banner.

According to Variety, the series is a thriller, which takes place over three summers in a small Texas town when a beautiful and popular teen, Kate, goes missing. Then, seemingly unrelated, a girl named Jeanette goes from being a sweet and awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town and, by ’95, the most despised person in America.

Last Summer stars Chiara Aurelia, Mika Abdalla, Michael Landes, Froy Gutierrez, Harley Quinn Smith, Allius Barnes, Blake Lee, Nathaniel Ashton, and Brooklyn Sudano.
