images (3)ABC Family has announced the premiere dates of its returning series and newbies for the 2013 summer listings.

The network will introduce four new shows this summer — The Fosters, Twisted, Dancing Fools and Vineyard.

‘The Fosters’ is a one-hour drama produced by famous actress Jennifer Lopez. Starring Teri Polo and Sherri Saum, the series follow the lives of two moms raising a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids.

Then there’s another series called ‘Twisted’. The show is a mystery drama centered on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past who has recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood. He becomes the Prime Suspect when a fellow student is found dead in her home. The series stars Avan Jogia, Maddie Hasson and Kylie Bunbury

From two dramas come a docu-soap in the form of ‘Vineyard’. The show follows a handful of 20-somethings on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer. Tight quarters, new friends and new rivals, all living, working and playing together, make this picturesque playground ripe for mischief and romance.

Last but not the least, a dancing competition also awaits fans of the cable network. Hosted by Baby Daddy’s Melissa Peterman, ‘Dancing Fools’ is a 30-minute show which features the funniest, most outrageous and memorable dances caught on camera. The dancers from the top two clips of the week compete on stage for a chance to win $10,000.
