This month, highlights include the serie’s premiere of 10 Things I Hate About You and special programming for March Break.
10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU – SERIES PREMIERE
Inspired by the hit movie, this ABC Family series follows sisters Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin) and Kat Stratford (Lindsey Shaw) as they join a new school, Padua High. It soon becomes clear that one sister wants to stand out in the crowd while the other just wants to fit in. Bianca, the social butterfly, realizes she has a long way to climb on the social ladder when the captain of the cheerleading team assigns her to be team mascot.
While Kat, a strong-willed, forthright feminist, gets distracted from her world-saving plans when she crushes on Patrick Verona. Despite their differences, these sisters soon begin to realize that they need each other in order to navigate their way through Padua and especially when having to deal with their very over-protective father (Larry Miller). This half-hour live-action comedy premieres in its regular timeslot on Friday, March 19 at 9 p.m.
