A script commitment from NBC has been made to a prospective series inspired by the 2001 Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack movie ‘Serendipity,’ according to both Deadline and its sibling publication, Variety.

The publications add that the project hails from Miramax Television. Miramax’s film division produced the original film. The idea for the show seems like a romantic one. Here’s the logline: Harry and Claire fall in love one fateful night, are separated by circumstance and then spend years trying to find one another again…with a little help from the universe.

Both publications then quote writer Jonny Umansky, who would also be an executive producer of the new series: “I’ve been madly in love with this movie for more than half my life. Never has the world needed a show like ‘Serendipity’ more, and the love stories we have in store are big, bold and filled to the brim with whimsy and wonder.”
