Recovery Road Addiction Drama Picked Up To Series By ABC Family

recovery-roadABC family has picked up to series Recovery Road, its drama pilot based on the popular young adult novel by Blake Nelson about a teenage girl dealing with addiction. This marks the first scripted series order for Karey Burke since she joined the network as EVP, Programming and Development in October. About a week earlier, ABC Family had made a decision on the two other drama pilots from its 2014 batch, the supernatural Stitchers, which went to series — the network’s first procedural — and the tennis-themed Unstrung, which didn’t go forward.
