Jennifer Love Hewitt fills out Fedora
Nabs Scott W. Anderson as producing partner for company
The "Ghost Whisperer" star-producer has tapped veteran TV movie producer Scott W. Anderson as producing partner at her Fedora Films, formerly LoveSpell Prods. The two met while working together on the Oxygen telefilm "Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber."
The company, newly housed in a bungalow on the Universal lot, has a pod deal at ABC Studios, which produces "Ghost Whisperer" for CBS.
Fedora's development slate includes the untitled Odessa project, an original movie for Lifetime, to which Hewitt is attached to star.
In 2005, LoveSpell acquired the rights to "She Had Brains, a Body, and the Ability to Make Men Love Her," a Texas Monthly article about a 22-year-old housewife and former homecoming queen in Odessa who became one of the city's most popular hookers. The project originally was developed as a feature.
On the feature side, Fedora is developing with Darius Films "Eboneezer Goodbye," an indie written by Ross McCall.
Additionally, Fedora has set up "Jennifer Love Hewitt's The Music Box," a 10-book graphic novel with IDW Comics, to be written by Scott Lobdell from a concept by Hewitt. Hewitt also has a signed a deal to pen a book for Hyperion.
Anderson most recently was an executive producer at Stanley M. Brooks' Once Upon a Time Films, where he supervised more than 50 hours of longform cable and television programming.
Hewitt is repped by Endeavor, Untitled and attorney Bob Wallerstein.
