It seems every bit of news lately has something to do with Marvel or something to do with a film getting turned into a television series. So, how about another of the latter?
Hitch, the 2005 comedy starring Will Smith, Eva Mendes and Kevin James, is being reworked as a half-hour, single-camera series for Fox.
EW confirmed the news, reporting that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are executive producing with Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont. Kaplan and Elfont, writing and directing partners known for their work on Can’t Hardly Wait and Josie and the Pussycats, will also pen the script.
The series is being described as “a workplace comedy that explores dating and sexual politics.”
Hitch, which saw Smith play a “dating consultant” who finds that his skills are not quite working on the gossip columnist (Mendes) who’s caught his eye, earned an impressive $368 million worldwide on a budget of $70 million.
Here’s a trailer for the film:
