Preview Video Clips of ABC Family Summer Series Make It or Break It and 10 Things I Hate About You

First Look: 10 Things I Hate About You and Make It or Break it

When I was putting together my Summer TV top 10 list, I couldn't choose just one ABC Family show to include. That's because the network has two new shows coming out over the next few weeks that seem like they could give old favorites like Greek a run for their money.

One of them is Make It or Break It, a show about an elite group of teen gymnastics champions whose world gets shaken up when a new hot prospect gets discovered — on a playground, no less — and comes to train at their gym. The part of me that grew up reading the Gymnasts book series and wishing I could do the splits can't wait to watch this show. (The part of me that watched a whole lot of the Summer Olympics is already getting judgey about the stunt doubles' gymnastics, but those who can't do a handspring shouldn't throw stones, right?) It premieres June 22 after the return of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

The other series I'm curious to check out is the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You, and judging from these poll results, I'm expecting some split opinions on this one. On paper, the show has some good things going for it: The movie's director also directed the pilot; Aliens in America's Lindsay Shaw is taking Julia Stiles's old role as Kat; and Larry Miller reprises his part from the movie as the girls' father. Greek writer Carter Covington is the man behind the series, which is a plus in my book. 10 Things will premiere July 7.

Does either show sound like one you'll check out? To get a look at the first promos and some longer sneak peeks, just


Here's a longer sneak peek of one of the Make it or Break It scenes.

I love 10 Things I Hate About You (the movie) and Heath Ledger really made the movie. I don't think I can be watching this second-rate version. I'd just be spending all my time comparing it to the original.

I saw that girl from 10 Things I Hate about You on Nickelodeon. Sorry but she can't measure up to Julia Stiles.

I just watched the extended promo and I liked the dad's whole STD rant but I didn't like how they tried to make Kat all "edgy" with her clothes. She was never edgy in the style department. She was so bitchy she never need to show it in her clothes. Sorry for the triple comment! :)

BTW the announcer guy for ABC Family is super annoying.

Even though the idea of making the movie into a TV show makes me shutter, I'll probably watch 10 Things I Hate About You because I liked Lindsay Shaw on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. And you do make all those good points about it...ugg! It's like torture! Do I like it? Do I hate it?
