Development News - September 22, 2015

Bravo's My So Called Wife and True Fiction.

  • The cable network has order a pilot for single camera comedy My So Called Wife written by Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein. Universal Cable Productions will produce. The project follows Ava, a con-artist who gets men and women to fall in love with her, marries them and then disappears with their money and just enough dirty inside information to guarantee they'll never go to the police. But things become complicated when she falls in love with her latest mark, and three of her last victims join together to track her down.
  • The cable network has also given a pilot order to single camera comedy True Fiction written by Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban. Universal Cable Productions will produce. The project centers on a former best-selling novelist turned college professor who, struggling to come up with her much anticipated follow-up book and desperate for a hit, steals her late student's manuscript. She debates whether or not to take credit for his work and finally get her career back on track or come forward with a rapidly unraveling truth that is juicier and more scandalous than any work of fiction.
