On Tuesday (July 15), ABC’s 2014 Summer TV Press Tour kicked off with a quick ABC Family executive panel led by President Tom Ascheim. While there weren’t any major announcements to be made about renewals, cancelations or new series pickups, there was one exciting piece of news that Ascheim had to share.
Every single original series on ABC Family is going to feature holiday-themed episodes later this year.
That’s right, get ready to carve pumpkins and scream with laughter during all-new Halloween-themed episodes of comedies “Melissa & Joey” and “Baby Daddy,” plus the premiere of new hidden-camera prank show “Freak Out” during the network’s annual “13 Nights of Halloween.”
Then break out the candy canes and hang the stockings this winter as “Pretty Little Liars,” “The Fosters,” “Switched at Birth,” “Chasing Life,” “Melissa and Joey” and “Baby Daddy” air all-new holiday-themed episodes during the network’s annual “25 Days of Christmas” programming event.
Because, as Ascheim quipped, “Nothing says Christmas like a text from ‘A.'”
