There are a few things to know about Freeform’s upcoming Good Trouble, but one of the big ones is simply this: The show is not going to be The Fosters. This is its own show, though the DNA from start to finish here is still the same.
In the video below, you can get a good sense as to just how different things are going to be. The clip (via TV Guide) shows series stars Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez doing their part in order to talk a little bit more about what this series is going to bring to the table — and also some of the specific struggles that their characters are going to be forced to deal with.
When it comes to Callie, for starters, the series is going to start off with her in a difficult spot. She is working under a conservative judge and because of that, she’s going to have a hard time making her voice heard. Is this man really going to be malleable to anything that she has a chance to say? At first, it’s not going to appear so. Instead, he’s more interested in just stay course, but over time, it’s possible that could change. Good Trouble is a realistic show and with that, we don’t see the judge becoming liberal in a short period of time. Yet, at the same time we wouldn’t be altogether shocked if this show gives us a chance to see some element of personal growth here.
For Mariana, however, her story is going to be very different as she finds herself thrown into the world of tech. It’s a hugely profitable industry where there are many opportunities to try and move ahead; however, the problem here comes via the fact that there is a lot of sexism present here. It’s a male-dominated industry and the vast majority of these people don’t have any real worldview that is the same as her. They’re going to have a hard time seeing eye to eye and this could be one of the fundamental issues that she runs into on the job.
Good Trouble, at least in the early going, it going to be very much about struggle as these characters figure out whether or not they can actually make it in the real world. Yet, if they start to find a little bit of success for themselves, this could eventually turn into one of the more hopeful series out there. Time will tell precisely what the end result ends up being here.
