We love us some Single Ladies and Hit The Floor over here, which is why we’re so thrilled that VH1 is getting another scripted series to add to the mix. In 2015, prepare yourself for Hindsight, a completely original new show about what happens when a woman is given a chance to go back in time and fix her life, starting on the eve of her wedding in 1995. The show stars Laura Ramsey, Craig Horner, and Sarah Goldberg, and was written by Emily Fox . “’Hindsight’ is a great mix of sweetness, drama, 90’s nostalgia and humor,” VH1’s EVP of Original Programming and Production, Susan Levison, explains, and you can get even more details about it in the press release below.
VH1 HAS 20/20 VISION WITH ITS NEXT SCRIPTED SERIES “HINDSIGHT”
One-Hour Series That Takes Us Back to the ’90s Slated for Early 2015 Premiere
Written By Emily Fox With Carl Beverly & Sarah Timberman
Set To Executive Produce
LOS ANGELES, CA – (February 26, 2014) – Looking to build on its momentum in the scripted arena, VH1 has greenlit the series “Hindsight,” the story of a woman who has the chance to go back in time with the hope of making better choices the second time around. This announcement comes on the heels of the recently announced scripted movie “Drumline: A New Beat” currently in production and executive produced by and starring Nick Cannon, set to premiere fall 2014. “Hindsight” is slated to premiere on VH1 in early 2015 with 10 one-hour episodes. The series is written by Emily Fox and the pilot was directed by Michael Trim. Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman of Timberman/Beverly serve as executive producers.
The series begins with Becca (Laura Ramsey) on the eve of her second wedding. It all seems perfect this time around, but she is still plagued by doubt. What if she could fix everything, and make the ’right’ choices this time? Becca finds herself thinking about her former best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg), with whom she had a falling out many years ago. If only she could talk to her once again… Suddenly, after a freakish elevator ride, Becca gets the opportunity to do just that as she wakes up in New York City on the morning of her first wedding day in 1995. She’s about to marry Sean (Craig Horner), a bad-boy artist who is all wrong for her – and she knows her first move must be to reconnect with Lolly to re-live that day. Can she ’make it right’ by living her life all over while readapting to life in New York City in the 90’s – a time of smoking in bars, carrying pagers, having an AOL email address? Becca will soon discover there’s no sure-fire way to make the right choices in life – even knowing everything she thinks she knows now.
“’Hindsight’ is a great mix of sweetness, drama, 90’s nostalgia and humor,” said Susan Levison, EVP of Original Programming and Production, VH1. “This series will resonate with our viewers because it offers the ultimate wish fulfillment – the chance to do things differently the second time around. We’re thrilled to continue our big push into scripted series development and are proud to partner with such talented auspices.”
“Hindsight” is just the latest project fueling VH1’s successful momentum in the scripted genre. Last month, the network announced that that it’s partnering with Nick Cannon on the new film “Drumline: A New Beat” with Fox Television Studios. VH1 delivered the highest-rated original cable movie of 2013 among adults 18-49 with “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story,” which attracted 4.5 million total viewers for its October 21 premiere, averaged a 2.9 rating in the adult 18-49 demo and generated over 2 million tweets. “Hit The Floor” was the highest-rated new scripted cable series in Summer 2013 in the adult 18-49 demo.
“Hindsight” is written by Emily Fox (“Jane By Design”), and the pilot was directed by Michael Trim (“Orange Is the New Black”). Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman serve as executive producers for Timberman/Beverly (Masters Of Sex, Justified, Elementary). Maggie Malina (Hit The Floor, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story) will also serve as executive producer as will Alex Motlagh for Pop Films (Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story) and Emily Fox. Susan Levison and Jill Holmes are executive producers for VH1.
