Lifetime has ordered psychological thriller “You” to series, the network announced Thursday.
“‘You’ is the most twisted love story ever,” said Liz Gateley, EVP and Head of Programming for Lifetime, in a statement. “A romantic thriller centered around a relationship between two people that gets taken too far, the series explores the line between passion and obsession. In the amazingly talented hands of Greg and Sera, we know this project will be special.”
Greg Berlanti and “The Magicians'” Sera Gamble will serve as executive producers.
Based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, “You” is a 21st century love story that asks, “What would you do for love?” When a brilliant bookstore manager crosses paths with an aspiring writer, his answer becomes clear: anything. Using the internet and social media as his tools to gather the most intimate of details and get close to her, a charming and awkward crush quickly becomes obsession as he quietly and strategically removes every obstacle – and person – in his way.
