Anna Kendrick in A Simple Favor


WarnerMedia has ordered one of its first TV series for its upcoming streaming service, and the project reunites Anna Kendrick and Paul Feig.

The two are executive producing a romantic comedy anthology series called "Love Life," Variety reports. Kendrick will star in the series as well. She previously had a lead role in the 2018 mystery thriller "A Simple Favor," which Feig directed.

"Love Life" comes from creator Sam Boyd, who is set to direct. WarnerMedia gave the series a 10-episode order, and each will be a half-hour long. As an anthology series, it will have different protagonists each season. The episodes will tell different relationship stories.

Kendrick has never starred in a TV series before. She is best known for her work on the big screen, including in the Twilight movies, the Pitch Perfect series, "A Simple Favor," and more. Meanwhile, Feig has extensive TV and film experience. He directed "Bridesmaids" and "Ghostbusters," as well as created the TV series "Freaks and Geeks." They should again make for a formidable team.

Lionsgate Television and FeigCo Entertainment are producing "Love Life." Jessie Henderson, Bridget Bedard, and Dan Magnante all join Kendrick and Feig as executive producers.
