'Pretty Little Liars' spinoff 'The Perfectionists' gets series order at Freeform

Freeform has officially picked up Pretty Little Liars spin-off The Perfectionists, and judging by the first teaser trailer, we can definitely see why!

King is responsible for writing the new series" pilot episode (which was directed by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum), and will serve as an executive producer throughout its run alongside "PLL' veterans Charlie Craig, Lisa Cochran-Neilan, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. Cast also includes Sydney Park (The Walking Dead) as Caitlin, newcomer Eli Brown as Dylan, Graeme Thomas King (The Widow) as Jeremy, Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) as Claire and Hayley Erin (General Hospital) in an undisclosed role. See, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists shares more than just it's main characters with the original show - it also shares a penchant for a body count.

Interestingly, The Perfectionists is not itself a PLL book, but is being retrofitted to focus on three college friends who struggle with both the fallout from the murder and "the stress of being overachievers".

"The stress of needing to be ideal leads to the town's first murder".

The series will be based on Sara Shepard's book The Perfectionists, and will be merged with the world of Pretty Little Liars!
