Did you catch Chelsea Kane on “One Tree Hill” last night? Chelsea has a great arc on the final season of the CW show and it looks like she’ll be heading back to TV with her own show!

ABC Family has picked up her half-hour comedy “Baby Daddy” co-starring Tahj Mowry. The show is the highest testing comedy pilot in the network’s history and is about a young man who becomes a surprise dad to a baby girl when she’s left on his doorstep by an ex-girlfriend. He decides to raise the baby with the help of his mother, his brother Danny (Derek Theler), his best buddy Tucker (Mowry) and his close female friend, Riley (Kane), who is harboring a secret crush on him. “Baby Daddy,” a multi-camera comedy, will begin production in Spring and will shoot in front of a live audience in Los Angeles.

In other ABC Family news, the network has renewed it’s hit “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” for a record fifth season! Are they taking advantage of the recent mainstream success of star Shailene Woodley? Maybe, but it’s working!

The record breaking 5th season will take the show over 100 episodes – a first for the network. “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” will continue its fourth season with all-new episodes beginning Monday, March 26, 8:00PM–9:00PM ET/PT.

Are you excited for “Baby Daddy” and more “Secret Life”?

    I think you might be right about ABC Family taking advantage of Shailene Woodley’s recent success. Secret Life still has a good following, but ABC Family is definitely trying to show off Shailene Woodley more.
