Pretty Little Liars Kicks Off Web Series During Mid Season Break
ABC Family has seen major success with Pretty Little Liars and of course they want to expand on that success. So they are taking advantage of their late summer and early fall break to launch a web series called Pretty Dirty Secrets. It will air 8 new episodes on ABCFamily.com every Tuesday 5 PM PT/8 PM ET starting August 28th.
The web series will track the time between the season finale to the new season’s return with the Halloween episode. Here is their official statement about the web series and what it will follow during the infamous mid-season break.
The webseries will focus on the time between the Aug. 28th summer finale and the special Halloween episode of “Pretty Little Liars” airing in October, when the town of Rosewood is getting ready for Halloween. The local Halloween store in Rosewood is a busy place these days and a good spot for someone who wants to keep tabs on certain people. But as the usual suspects come in and out of the store, will they find more than just the ultimate Halloween costume?
“Pretty Dirty Secrets” will also introduce a new face in Rosewood, Shana (Aerial Miranda), who is the Halloween store clerk. The character of Shana will later be seen in the “Pretty Little Liars” series airing in early 2013.
It sounds like it will provide the fans of the show with some juicy drama to keep them content. I wonder if this will kick off a regular web series once the show returns before another mid-season break? I think that could be a useful tool to use and will also give fans a different angle than they are used to see. However, I doubt it is cheap to make and I wouldn’t blame them for wanting to wait to see how it does first. In fact that would be the wise thing to do, so I support it.
How do you feel about this news? Will you be tuning to get your fix? I might if I remember. It sounds like it could be a useful show and also fun to watch, but at the same time we could use a break from all of this drama in the show. Pretty Little Liars certainly is no-show that is light to watch and I would also assume that their web series will be no different in that level. But I could be wrong and I hope that will be the case for the viewers of the web series. Do you hope that it will be less dramatic or not?
