Milch’s TWISTED Premieres Tonight

Beverly Hills, CA (June 11, 2013)– Artist International (AI) is proud to announce that Adam Milch’s TWISTED will premiere this evening at 9PM on ABC Family.

TWISTED, originally titled SOCIO, was created, written and will be executive produced by Milch. Picked up by ABC Family from a pilot directed by Jon Amiel (ENTRAPMENT, THE TUDORS), TWISTED stars Avan Jogia (CAPRICA, VICTORIOUS) as the murderous and misunderstood lead character, Danny Desaim, and has Denise Richards (TWO AND A HALF MEN, LOVE ACTUALLY) playing his mother. Creator Adam Milch and the pilot’s director, Jon Amiel, were represented by Artist International.

TWISTED is a one-hour drama centered on Desaim (Jogia), a charismatic sixteen-year-old alleged sociopath who has returned home after spending five years in a juvenile detention center. Recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood, he becomes the obvious prime suspect when a fellow student is murdered.

Co-starring in the series are Maddie Hasson (GRIMM), Kylie Bunbury (THE SITTER), Kimberly Quinn (END GAME), Sam Robards (Gossip Girl) and newcomer Ashton Moio (THE HUNGER GAMES). Creator Adam Milch will executive produce with Gavin Polone (ABC Family‘s Jane By Design) and David Babcock (Brothers & Sisters).
