EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Love Hewitt, star/executive producer of Lifetime‘s hit series The Client List, is developing another series for the cable network loosely inspired by her 2010 book The Day I Shot Cupid, in which she offers tips on romance in a comical and honest way based on her own dating experiences. (Watch Hewitt talk about the book below). Matt Hastings (Alphas) will write the project, titled Finding Love, and executive produce with Hewitt through her Fedora Films banner. Universal Cable Prods, where Hastings has a development deal, and Lifetime are producing. As part of Lifetime’s series order to The Client List last year, the cable network inked a first-look deal with Hewitt and her Fedora Films.
This marks the third project Hastings has set up through his deal with the studio, including Flip with writer Chris Fischer penning, about a young male law student at USC who finds himself living the ‘high life’ in Los Angeles, thanks to his ‘side business’ of distributing designer drugs. Hastings, repped by APA and the Gotham Group, is also co-executive producer on the Syfy/UCP sophomore drama Alphas. At Lifetime, he has directed an episode of Drop Dead Diva. Hewitt is with WME and Untitrled.
