CBS Films' VP of production Mark Ross and creative executive Alex Ginno will oversee the project for the studio.
“I absolutely love this project. It’s a fun and fresh unique perspective within the romantic comedy world. Every time I mention the story to someone they immediately respond with how it relates to their own life – which makes this such a universal experience… anyone who has loved before has lost before. I’m also excited to work with CBS Films and a chance to work with legendary producer Leonard Goldberg is icing on the cake!”
Fickman is represented by WME and Management 360.
