Review: Tom Hanks just can't keep Clint Eastwood's 'Sully' in the air

8 September 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First and foremost: Chesley Sullenberger did extraordinary work in landing Us Airways flight 1549 in the Hudson River, and every single person involved in the rescue efforts that day deserves the highest possible praise for how they handled things.

Freeform is hitting the gas on original series development, pacting with a slew of producers — from Selena Gomez to Will Packer to Mila Kunis to Andy Samberg to the “Gossip Girl” team of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage — as the Disney-owned cabler hunts for shows to reinforce its revamped brand image.

The network formerly known as ABC Family relaunched in January with a moniker designed to appeal to millennial viewers and their younger siblings. Losing the “ABC” and “Family” designations was meant to allow the channel to expand the horizons of its original series and separate it from the established Alphabet network. The channel has also sought to expand its digital horizons with original content and by making its TV shows more readily available on its authenticated streaming app.

Not surprisingly, the projects on Freeform’s slate feature multicultural families, fantasy vehicles and rags-to-riches aspirational tales. The slate includes the »
