Lifetime is looking for a new Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.
The female-skewing cable network is teaming with Jennifer Love Hewitt
to develop Darcy’s Town, a modern-day retelling of Jane Austen’s
literary classic Pride and Prejudice.
The Lifetime drama takes place in a small Virginia town and is being
penned by Sheryl Anderson (Charmed), exec produced by Hewitt and hails
from the actress-producer’s Fedora Films and Cineflix. Fedora’s head of
development and production Jeanie Bradley brought the project to
Pride and Prejudice, first published in 1813, is set in 19th century
England and revolves around the Bennet family and Elizabeth’s love
affair with Mr. Darcy. Lifetime’s Darcy’s Town marks the second Austen
reimagining this development season. Boardwalk Empire’s Margaret Nagle
has set up a modern Sense and Sensibility at CBS and revolves around
three devoted sisters whose lives are upended when the father who
abandoned them as children returns.
In 2010 the Lifetime channel aired a telefilm called The Client
List, based on a real-life 2004 Texas prostitution scandal, and early
in 2011 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released that production on
DVD. The TV movie and the DVD were well received, so Lifetime decided
to move forward with turning the story into a weekly TV series…but with
The network, the show title, the general premise, the star (Jennifer
Love Hewitt) and the actress playing the main character’s mother
(Cybill Shepherd) were all the same. But the rest of the cast changed,
as did the name of all the characters…including the characters played
by Hewitt and Shepherd! But in April 2012, Lifetime debuted broadcasts
for their revamped version of the story with The Client List – The
Complete 1st Season, and it’s done well enough to be renewed for a
second season next year…and for a DVD to be planned as well! Sony
hasn’t officially announced the 3-disc set as of this writi…
Lifetime has put in development Mrs. G’s Bigger Love, an original movie project executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Written by Julie Golden, the film is based on an entry in Heather
Gatticio’s blog Derfwad Manor. In the post, Gatticio, a happily married
mother of two, muses hypothetically about becoming a female polygamist,
marrying the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem.
The Lifetime project follows a bored Seattle housewife’s fictional
day-in-the-the-life-of-a-female-polygamist blog. When the blog attracts
the attention of a book agent and she realizes the fame, money and
validation she so craved during her bored and frustrated housewife
existence, she finds herself forced to cover up her “normal” life in
order to perpetuate the myth.
Hewitt executive produces with Jeanie Bradley, executive at her
Fedora Films. Mrs. G.’s Bigger Love stems from Fedora’s first-look deal
with Lifetime. It joins a drama Hewitt has in the works at the cable
