Lifetime Orders Modern Love Pilot

The long-planned Modern Love TV show has been ordered to pilot, though not at HBO, where the script originally landed. Lifetime announced today that it ordered the pilot, which centers on the science editor at the New York Times (or a modified version thereof) who suddenly becomes the "Modern Love" editor while his marriage is dissolving and he's raising a 15-year-old daughter. Perhaps the lessons of love in the stories he's editing will turn into lessons of love in his actual life!
