Along with The Fosters and Twisted ABC Family has just announced that they will be adding two more series to their summer 2013 lineup.  Michael Riley, President of ABC Family has announced that the network has picked up two new series, Dancing Fools a half-hour unscripted comedy and The Vineyard a docu-soap.

Dancing Fools will be hosted by Melissa Peterman, who you may know from many other series one of them being Baby Daddy, also on ABC Family. This half-hour comedy will be executive produced by Phil Gurin. Looks like they’re trying to capitalize off the momentum of the popular Bunheads series.

The Vineyard (working title) is set as the coming of age story of a handful of 20-somethings on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer.  We will see what summer has in store for this group as they live in tight quarters, among friends and frenemies.  The Vineyard, created and executive produced by Dave Broome and Brian Smith. Series will begin production in the spring and will be ready to premier this summer. The Docu-Soap style is similar to ABC’s very successful Modern Family, let’s see if it works on ABC Family.

Do you watch ABC Family shows? Do you think Disney sometimes goes too far for a family friendly channel?

I am a Latina wife, mother of a 5 year old precious little girl, and a long time Disney enthusiast. We are a Disney Family and watch our Disney movie collection often. It is a great joy to see my daughter lost in the magic and wonder of those stories. Nothing brings a smile to my heart more than watching her sing a long with the characters, or when she talks to her cousins and tells them, "You have to believe in the magic, you just HAVE to believe!" In the last few years our family has done quite a few Disney related activities. Whether visiting the park for the first time as a family in Orlando or enjoying a cruise on the Disney Fantasy we never get tired and we are always impressed. I enjoy staying up to date with anything Disney related from the Disney Parks to movies, shows and products. My current obsession is Vinylmations. When not writing here, I talk about Disney, motherhood, and more on my blog.
