A new drama series that “explores the line between passion and obsession” has received an order for 10 episodes from Lifetime. The cable network announced today that it greenlighted “You,” a psychological thriller from Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble.
Liz Gateley, EVP and Head of Programming for Lifetime, announced the pickup. The project is produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and A+E Studios.
“’You’ is the most twisted love story ever,” said Gately. “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.”
The 21st century love story is based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name.
In addition to Berlanti and Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo are executive producers.
