Pic concerns a woman who leaves her husband in Alabama and opts for the New York lifestyle. Neal Moritz is producing; Jon Jashni and Wink Mordaunt are exec producers.
Bergen, who hosts the Oxygen Network yakker “Exhale With Candice Bergen,” will next be seen in Miramax’s “A View From the Top.” She is repped by the William Morris Agency.
