Will Smith and co. pitching ‘Hitch’ the TV series

HollywoodNews.com: Will Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment production label are quite serious about turning his 2005 romantic comedy “Hitch” into a TV series.

Smith attempted to adapt the film into a half hour comedy three years ago, however, it didn’t even get lensed as a CBS pilot. “Hitch” revolves around a famed relationship expert who can’t get a grip on his own romances.

This time around, per Deadline, Smith and Overbrook have hired “The Proposal” scribe Pete Chiarelli to turn “Hitch” into an action-packed hour. Several networks are apparently bidding on the series.

“Hitch” reps Chiarelli’s first stab at TV after writing “Most Wanted,” an action-comedy that will reunite “Proposal” team Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds and director Anne Fletcher.

“Hitch” was a huge success at the worldwide box office, chalking up $368.1 million.
