Less than two years I ago I had the privilege to fly to Los Angeles to enjoy breakfast with the cast of a brand new show that was getting ready to air on then-ABC Family (now Freeform). That show went on to become Freeform’s #1 comedy of all time in Becomers 12-34 and Women 18-34 and wins its cable time period across the key target demographics. That’s right, I’m talking about YOUNG & HUNGRY, which is now getting ready to air its Season 3 Finale on April 6th! And trust me… you do not want to miss it!
If you were following along, you probably saw when I had breakfast with the cast and Executive Director of ABC Family’s YOUNG & HUNGRY! The show is about the charming Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), a well-off young tech entrepreneur who hires a feisty charismatic young food blogger, Gabi (Emily Osment) to be his personal chef. Along for the ride is Gabi’s sharp-witted roommate and best friend, Sofia (Aimee Carrero), as well as Josh’s publicist and right-hand-man, the high strung Elliot (Rex Lee).
YOUNG & HUNGRY is a fun show! I can’t tell you how badly I want to raid Gabi’s wardrobe closet, or how Sofia keeps me laughing with her one-liners. The show does have more adult themes than other ABC Family programming, but if you are mature enough to handle it, the show is enduring. Plus I just love that it is centered around a blogger!
So the month of June had kind of been a vacation month for me. My BFF and I took off to Maine and once I returned back to Maryland, I turned right back around and headed up to Boston and Rhode Island! While in Boston, as I was headed into the Frost Bar at Faneuil Hall, I decided to check my email via my phone on a complete whim… My sister thought I was absolutely crazy when I started shrieking with glee! I received an email inviting me to Los Angeles for press events, with one specifically related to a movie I’ve been counting down the days to see… Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!
Now once I calmed down (and had a few ice drinks in celebration!), I pulled the email back up to read it carefully and see what else was in store. Disney, Marvel, DreamWorks, and ABC Family definitely put together an amazing few days in Los Angeles for 24 other bloggers and I to attend press junkets and events in honor of several new films and projects!
