Duck Dynasty star and Dancing With the Stars runner-up Sadie Robertson Huff has signed a deal with Dumb and Dumber and The Princess Switch producer Brad Krevoy to adapt her novel, Life Just Got Real, into a scripted series.
The series will mark Robertson Huff’s debut as a producer and follows the lives of two high school girls, both with drastically different backgrounds, who join a reality TV show only to realize that “life is messy, love is hard, and second chances don’t come around every day.”
Robertson Huff will make guest appearances on the show.
The series is being developed with Alfonso H. Moreno attached to showrun and Amanda Phillips and Krevoy’s MPCA set to executive produce. The deal was introduced by Dione Sheehan and negotiated by Eric Jarboe, Reuben Liber, UTA and Skrzyniarz & Mallean.
Veteran producer Krevoy has become a Hallmark mainstay, producing eight seasons of the channel’s highest-rated cable series When Calls the Heart as well as countless movies for both the Hallmark Channel and Netflix – including A Christmas Prince (Rose McIver, Ben Lamb), The Princess Switch (Vanessa Hudgens), Holiday in the Wild (Rob Lowe, Kristin Davis), Operation Christmas Drop (Kat Graham, Alexander Ludwig) and A Christmas Prince among others.
