EXCLUSIVE: Lifetime has put in development Mrs. G’s Bigger Love, an original movie project executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Written by Julie Golden, the film is based on an entry in Heather Gatticio’s blog Derfwad Manor. In the post, Gatticio, a happily married mother of two, muses hypothetically about becoming a female polygamist, marrying the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem. The Lifetime project follows a bored Seattle housewife’s fictional day-in-the-the-life-of-a-female-polygamist blog. When the blog attracts the attention of a book agent and she realizes the fame, money and validation she so craved during her bored and frustrated housewife existence, she finds herself forced to cover up her “normal” life in order to perpetuate the myth. Hewitt executive produces with Jeanie Bradley, executive at her Fedora Films. Mrs. G.’s Bigger Love stems from Fedora’s first-look deal with Lifetime. It joins a drama Hewitt has in the works at the cable network, an adaptation of her book The Day I Shot Cupid. Golden is repped by APA.
