"State of Georgia" (ABC Family TV show) is a comedy series starring Raven-Symoné as Georgia Chamberlin, an aspiring actress with a larger than life personality, and her science geek best friend, Jo (Majandra Delfino), who are trying to make professional and personal headway in New York City.

Georgia, a brash, confident Southern twenty-something, arrives in New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a famous actress. To make ends meet, she works various part-time jobs, accompanied (often through Georgia's sheer will) by her best friend and roommate, Jo. Cute but socially awkward, Jo has anxiety issues and lives for science. She, too, has ambitious dreams—to get into the Physics department at a top-tier university.

Loretta Devine ("Grey's Anatomy," "Jumping the Broom") stars as Aunt Honey, Georgia's sexy, southern aunt who allows Georgia and Jo to rent the downstairs of her lavish apartment while they're in New York pursuing their dreams. With her words of wisdom and fascinating stories about her many ex-husbands, Aunt Honey helps to keep Georgia and Jo on track while in the city.

The "State of Georgia" TV show is produced by ABC Studios. The executive producers are Kirk J. Rudell and Jennifer Weiner, author of the best-selling novels "Good in Bed" and "In Her Shoes." The pilot was directed by Ted Wass and was written by Weiner & Jeff Greenstein.
