Written by actor-writer Schuyler Helford (Call Me Kat) with Emily R. Wilson (Bucktown, The Conners) supervising, Unplanned In Akron is a series about two teenagers navigating parenthood in the best way they know how. With a little help from their friends and parents, they will learn that no matter what age you are, taking care of a child is no joke — but sometimes, you just gotta laugh (or cry) your way through it.
Wilson executive produces alongside Samie Kim Falvey and Erik Feig for Picturestart as well as Chris Mills and Chris Emerson from Authentic Talent and Literary. Helford co-executive produces. Luke Esselen oversees for Picturestart.
As a writer, Helford has been on CBS’ radar; she was a writer for the network’s 2017 Showcase.
On-screen, she most recently recurred on the Fox comedy series Call Me Kat and had a lead role in the Eli Roth-produced feature Haunt. She is also the creator of the Web series #Cybriety and Indoorsy.
Helford, who has a comedy pedigree (her father is veteran comedy showrunner Bruce Helford), was repped in the deal by Eric Sherman of Ziffren Brittenham.
