Watch our exclusive interview with Avan for the scoop on his upcoming ABC Family thriller.

ABC Family has perfected the art of crafting darkly deceitful female characters — for example, every single girl on Pretty Little Liars — but this summer, it’s the boys’ turn to play. Avan Jogia stars in the new drama Twisted, about a (possibly) reformed teenage murderer, and he recently stopped by the HollywoodLife.com office to take us inside the mind of his character.

“On the pilot, [Danny] comes back from juvenile hall, having spent five years there for killing his aunt when he was 11,” the former Victorious star told us. “So, you know, light stuff.”

But just when things start to go Danny’s way, another major wrench is thrown into his life.

“He starts to integrate back into society,” Avan began, “but on the pilot, someone in school dies.”

(Avan and I agreed that if life was like ABC Family, we both would have asked to be home schooled.)

How to watch the first episode before the series’ summer premiere:

Though Twisted doesn’t officially premiere until June 11, ABC Family is showing a “sneak peek” — it’s actually the entire first episode — after the Pretty Little Liars season finale March 19. Avan assured me there will be plenty to keep viewers hooked.

“It’s primarily a mystery show,” he said. “Mystery and romance. It’s high school, right?”

Watch my interview with Avan below, then drop a comment: Will you be adding Twisted to your TV schedule this summer?

The dialogue is definitely a little cheesy but the shows not a dud. I’m enjoying Danny and Jo and I’d tune in again to see where this goes
