Freeform has reportedly begun development of “After,” a drama series based on Rhiannon Thomas’ 2015 debut novel “A Wicked Thing”.
The story is effectively a “Sleeping Beauty” sequel in which Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince one hundred years after falling asleep to find her family long dead and her kingdom taken from her. She must transform into a warrior to regain it.
Tom Lynch (“South of Nowhere, “Caitlin’s Way”) will co-write with Adam Lash and Cori Uchida. Lynch and Robin Schwartz will executive produce.
