Lin is exec producing for Warner Bros. TV along with Colman and Lin Pictures’ Jennifer Gwartz.

The indie docu tells the story of eight women who have been members of a book club in Washington, D.C., that has lasted more than 60 years. It was produced by Hope Hartman, who is head of PR for ABC Entertainment.
