The Bold Type is a comedy/drama series on little known young adult channel Freeform, which also airs the Ashley Tisdale executive produced Young & Hungry.

The show’s inspired by the life of long time Cosmopolitan magazine editor and executive Joanna Coles, and revolves around three sassy best friends working at the leading women’s magazine, Scarlet; newly promoted writer Jane (Katie Stevens), social media director Kat (Aisha Dee) and assistant Sutton (Meghann Fahy).

The three partner up to publish each issue of the periodical, and the struggle is real! It’s evident that the promotion of one of the trio creates a strain in their relationship. It’s well known the level of subtle bureaucracy that presents itself even in the most “liberal” of agencies – the three stars fight to get their creative voices heard amidst the rigid older generation.

And what’s a girly show without some relationship drama? Secret love affairs are a fixture of the show, featuring some X-rated love scenes in the most open of places – uhm, what’s the most that can go down in an elevator? Apparently, not just the floors.
This is a typical show where you’ll get the usual girl drama, break ups and make ups, and “not-so-funny” scenes. Hop onto this one only if you can’t bear the agonizingly long hiatus that the much better Pretty Little Liars is currently on.
