Lifetime has given a straight-to-series order to a psychological drama from Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble called “You.” 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?” The logline: 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.
“You” is produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television and A+E Studios. In addition to Berlanti and Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo serve as executive producers. No casting or launch date have been announced.
