'Famous In Love' Was Actually Inspired by This Other Freeform Show!

You wouldn’t guess it, but Pretty Little Liars actually inspired a little of Famous In Love.

Showrunner I. Marlene King revealed in a new video featurette that PLL inspired her to sign up for the series, starring Bella Thorne.

“One of the reasons I wanted to do this show is because I got to watch the Pretty Little Liars grow up in front of the camera and become starlets over the course of the show,” she shared. “Seeing the good, the bad and the ugly…”

Marlene adds, “All of that is such great fuel for Famous in Love…We get to show our audience, worldwide, what does it really look like when the camera turns off and you go on with your life after someone says ‘wrap’.”

Check out the full video below!

Famous in Love returns on April 2nd on Freeform.
