Showtime has put in development a half-hour swingers comedy from actress-writer Alanna Thompson and Dynamic Television (Van Helsing, Wynonna Earp).

Created by Thompson, the untitled project focuses on relationships from three perspectives: a monogamous couple, an open couple and two singles who meet and fall in love at a swingers party. It wrestles the question, is there a meaningful, sustainable alternative to monogamy?

Daniel March and Holly Hines of Dynamic Television will serve as executive producers. Elena Blekhter, also of Dynamic, will co-executive produce. Showtime is producing.

Thompson and Dynamic Television previously teamed on spy-action drama Cipher which sold to NBC last year. Thompson also previously developed half-hour comedy The Day I Turned Uncool, with David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Lauren Miller Rogen for NBC. She is repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts Entertainment.
