Showtime has teamed with Arrow and The Flash co-creator/executive producer Greg Berlanti and former Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble for You, a psychological thriller drama project from Berlanti Productions, Alloy Entertainment and Warner Bros Television.
Based on You: A Novel by Caroline Kepnes, published in September by Atria/Emily Bestler Books and packaged by Alloy Entertainment, You is described as a 21st century love story about the obsessive yet brilliant twentysomething Joe Goldberg who uses the hyper-connected digital age to make the woman of his dreams fall in love with him.
Berlanti and Gample are writing the script, with Berlanti attached to direct the potential pilot. The two are executive producing with Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Cheryl Dolins and Berlanti Prods.’ Sarah Schechter.
Berlanti Prods. has two broadcast pilots: Supergirl at CBS, which Berlanti co-wrote, and Blindspot at NBC. In addition to the CW’s Arrow and The Flash, both already renewed for next season, the company also has NBC series The Mysteries Of Laura. In cable, Berlanti previously created and executive produced Political Animals on USA.
Gamble serves as an executive producer on upcoming NBC drama Aquarius and has pilot The Magicians in contention at Syfy.
