“A Simple Favor” star Anna Kendrick and director Paul Feig are reuniting for a romantic comedy anthology series at the upcoming WarnerMedia streaming service.
Titled “Love Life,” the 10-episode half-hour series is “about the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we’re with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone forever,” according to Lionsgate Television, which will produce the show.
A romantic comedy anthology series, the show will follow a different protagonist’s quest for love each season, with each half-hour episode telling the story of one of their relationships.
Kendrick will star in the series and executive produce alongside creator Sam Boyd, Feig and Jessie Henderson of FeigCo Entertainment. Boyd wrote the pilot and will also direct. Bridget Bedard is also an executive producer, with Dan Magnante of FeigCo serving as co-executive producer.
Few concrete details about WarnerMedia’s foray into streaming have been formally announced, though the platform is expected to launch in late 2019. “Love Life” is one of the first original series ordered for the streaming service, following an animated “Gremlins” reboot currently in development.
