Famous in Love 1×01 Photos & Synopsis: ‘Pilot’


We’re down to the final one month countdown until our newest obsession is unleashed upon the world!

Freeform has released an official synopsis and promotional photos for the pilot of its latest YA adaptation Famous In Love, which tells the story of a normal college girl whose life is turned upside down when she lands the lead role in a hyped YA movie franchise.

The series, based upon the YA book series of the same name by Rebecca Serle, is the latest Freeform series to get the “binge” treatment. Following its series premiere on April 18, the entire first season of Famous in Love will be available to watch on several digital platforms ranging from Freeform to Hulu.

Here’s the synopsis for Famous in Love‘s pilot, which — spoiler alert — is as amazing as you’d hope it would be. (You can see the photos in our gallery above!)

Paige Townsen is a normal college girl working on her business degree who enjoys acting on the side. When the next big movie franchise goes into production and opens its doors looking for the next “It girl” to play the lead role, Paige’s roommates Cassie and Jake convince her to go to the open casting call. Never in her wildest dreams does she think she will even make it to the callbacks, but after an electric audition with Hollywood heartthrob Rainer Devon, her chance of a lifetime happens. She gets the part and her life is about to change forever.

Meanwhile, intrigue is flowing through Hollywood as every actor wants a part in the new “Locked” film.

Famous in Love premieres Tuesday, April 18 at 9/8c on Freeform.
