Bella Thorne has signed on to star in a new ABC Family pilot based on the book Famous In Love. She previously teased a collaboration with Pretty Little Liars show-runner Marlene King on Snapchat, and this is why — they're working together on this new project.
Deadline confirmed the news, and then she posted about it on her Instagram account.

The story revolves around a normal college student who suddenly gets picked to star in a Hollywood movie series, and struggles with the trappings of fame.
We know she's a fan of the series because she's even quoted on the book's cover. And based on the way she reacted when her The DUFF costar Robbie Amell and his fiancée Italia Ricci wished her a big congratulations (by retweeting), she can't wait to get started!

Since we've missed the star on Shake It Up, especially because Zendaya has been killing it with her show K.C. Undercover, we're thrilled that she's following in her former costar's footsteps. We've loved her feature film acting, but it'll be so great to see her every week!
