(Monday, July 12, 2010) - From friendship and fashion to travel and
romance, ABC Family presents the television premiere of "Wild
Child," starring Emma Roberts, Natasha Richardson (in her last
on-screen performance), Nick Frost and Aidan Quinn on Sunday, August 8
(8:00PM - 10:00PM ET/PT). The movie will premiere during the network's
annual 10-day summer programming event, "Campus Crush" (August 1
- August 10).
Emma Roberts stars as 16-year-old Poppy, an LA teen diva who does what
she wants whenever she wants. But after an over-the-top prank pushes her
father (Quinn) one step too far, she finds herself shipped off to the one
place where everything will change - British boarding school. No cell
phones, no designer clothes, no way. Desperate to break free, she sets in
motion the ultimate escape plan involving the son (Alex Pettyfer) of the
head mistress (Richardson) - only to discover that this could be the
reason she wants to stay.
"Wild Child" is directed by Nick Moore; written by Lucy Dahl;
and produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Diana Phillips while being
line produced by Alexandra Ferguson.
