Rom-com fans, rejoice! A How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days TV show is officially happening.
But there’s a catch: each episode will only be 10-minutes long.
The beloved 2003 movie saw Kate Hudson playing an Andie Anderson, a reporter writing an article about the mistakes women make in relationships, while Matthew McConaughey played Benjamin Barry, an ad executive trying to prove he could make any woman fall in love with him.
While a lot is still unknown about the project, the official synopsis on TVLine provides a few hints.
“[The reboot] follows a glib young online columnist and an oversexed advertising executive who both need to prove, once and for all, they’re capable of being monogamous,” the synopsis reads. “They soon discover, however, keeping a relationship is harder than Andie Anderson made it look!”
It seems like the reboot, which is set to be written by comedian and podcast host Guy Branum, is set to have a similar plot to the movie, and with the reference to Andie, it’s possible the two stories happen in the same universe!
“We were all certain you could not make a good romantic comedy anymore because print media is dead and RomCom ladies have to work at magazines, but against the tides of history Quibi & Paramount have agreed to let me re-write How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” tweeted Branum.
