ABC is continuing its aggressive expansion of scripted programming by ordering a pair of drama pilots, "The Fosters" and "Socio."   "The Fosters" comes from executive producer Jennifer Lopez and writers Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige and focuses on a multi-ethnic family of foster kids and biological kids being raised by two mothers.   Simon Fields and Greg Gugliotta will serve as executive producers on the Nuyorican Productions, Inc. and Prodco, Inc. pilot.   "Socio" was written by Adam Milch ("Greek") and will be executive produced by Gavin Polone. Think "Dexter Jr," because the pilot is built around a 16-year-old sociopath »
