Jennifer Love Hewitt Overseeing 'Pride & Prejudice' for Lifetime THR

Jennifer Love Hewitt is executive producing a modern-day take on the classic Jane Austen novel "Pride & Prejudice" for Lifetime, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

The project, "Darcy's Town," retells the novel in a small Virginia town, the story says. It's the second Austen-based project this development season, with CBS working on a modern take on "Sense and Sensibility" with "Boardwalk Empire’s” Margaret Nagle, the story adds.

The Lifetime project will be written by Sheryl Anderson of "Charmed" and comes from Love Hewitt's Fedora Films and Cineflix, the piece adds.
