Former child star and “Let’s Stay Together” actress Kyla Pratt nabs a new promising role on ABC’s popular family network, ABC Family.
Pratt will take on the role of Trish Collins, roommate to co-star Samantha Logan aka Maddie Graham, a recovering addict with a reputation to party hard in the drama pilot “Recovery Road,” based on Blake Nelson’s novel by the same name.
In the pilot, Maddie (Logan) is forced to enter rehab after her school counselor makes her choose between expulsion and seeking help for her addiction.
Maddie opts for treatment, spending her nights at a rehab facility alongside Trish (Pratt) then returning to school daily, pretending that everything is peachy with her high school classmates.
ABC Family has been known to push the boundaries of family television, by airing shows like “The Secret Life of An American Teenager,” about a young high schooler faced with an unexpected pregnancy and “The Fosters” a blended family of foster kids, raised by a lesbian couple. “Recovery Road” sounds like another drama that may fit the bill.
