Network developing sitcom from upcoming book

CBS is developing a sitcom project based on upcoming book “The True Adventures of a Terrible Dater.”

Susan Brightbill, who wrote the book (set to be published this year), is adapting it into a half-hour comedy.

“Dater” centers on a single woman — who works as an architect in Chicago — and her friends as she navigates the world of dating.

Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein will exec produce the project, which comes from Warner Bros. TV.

Brightbill is a one-time VH1 VJ who has worked as an actress (“Message in a Bottle”) and scribe.
