Hewitt is an executive producer on the project, which moves the setting of Austen's novel from 19th-century England to present-day small-town Virginia, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It's called "Darcy's Town."
Sheryl Anderson ("Charmed") is writing the pilot, which will presumably center on the relationship between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. How Anderson and Hewitt will stretch the beats of their relationship over an ongoing series remains to be seen.
Hewitt's production company, Fedora Films, has a first-look deal with Lifetime. The cable channel is also developing an adaptation of Hewitt's book "The Day I Shot Cupid." Season 2 of "The Client List," meanwhile, is set to premiere next year. »
