Jan. 12, 2022 – “Single Drunk Female” enlisted the help of a sobriety consultant in order to accurately portray what life is like for newly recovering alcoholics. That included one very important rule.

“One of the things that came up was treating dating and romance, and dating other people in the program responsibly,” executive producer Daisy Gardner said Wednesday during the upcoming Freeform series’ TCA panel. “A lot of times people recommend that you’re sober for a year in a day before you launch into things. And so that became a thing that we examined in the show.”

“Single Drunk Female” is from creator Simone Finch, a recovering alcoholic who is more than seven years sober. She was able to use her own experiences with Alcoholics Anonymous and added that the no-dating rule is kind of an unwritten one.
