Twisted is an American teen drama mystery-thriller television series created by Adam Milch about a teen with a troubled past who reconnects with his two female best friends from childhood and subsequently becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead in her home.
The ABC Family original mystery series Twisted centres on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past, who returns to his hometown after spending five years in juvenile detention.
Immediately branded an outcast, Danny attempts to reconnect with his two childhood best friends, Jo and Lacey, and to smooth over tensions with his mother, Karen, whose socialite status plummeted after her son's imprisonment and the mysterious disappearance of her husband, Danny's father.
He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead in her home.
The series is executive produced by Gavin Polone, David Babcock and Adam Milch, who also wrote the pilot. The drama stars Avan Jogia, Maddie Hasson, Kylie Bunbury, Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards.
The series is produced by Prodco, Inc.
