Broken Road is a new Midwestern teen drama that was created by seventeen year old Courtney Haigh. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Corey Feldman has signed on to be an executive producer on the program, as well as direct four episodes.
The show revolves around two teenage sisters that are forced to move to the fictional town of Huntington, Kansas when both of their parents are called away for a tour of duty in Iraq. The show will star local teens, with Ed Asner set to play the high school principle. Feldman stated, "It is a new and exciting challenge for me to both direct and executive produce a scripted series, and I am honored to be part of and help create the first-ever scripted series created for and written by teens."
The six-part series currently airs on ABC affiliate KTKA in Topeka, Kansas. You can look for the entire run to launch this Sunday on Broken Road TV.
