Lifetime is prepping The 10th Date, a two-hour movie executive produced by The Devil Wears Prada producer Wendy Finerman. There is no green light for the project yet, but I hear casting choices already are being discussed and the movie potentially could serve as backdoor pilot.
Written by and will be directed by Nzingha Stewart, writer-director of the 2015 Lifetime movie With this Ring, The 10th Date is a comedy that follows four friends who embark on an often hilarious journey to successfully get to that elusive 10th date — a holy grail in the dating world when they think a man finally feels committed. It chronicles every woman’s battles with the ups and downs of modern romance, exes and friendships while watching their other friends struggle with the realities of marriage and dating. Finerman and Lisa Zupan executive produce for A+E Studios.
