Universal Cable Productions and Hypnotic’s Doug Liman and Dave Bartis’ romantic dramedy “Heartbeats” has found a love connection with Starz, the cabler announced today.

Written by Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan, the half-hour scripted show follows the lives of Bobby and Kristen — two individuals who would be perfect for each other, if only they’d met at a different time. Episodes will focus alternatively on either lead. Liman and Bartis will serve as executive producers and Jones and Mohan will co-executive produce.

The concept of romantic entanglement is nothing new to Jones, who co-wrote Sundance darling “Like Crazy,” and Mohan, who co-wrote the Lizzy Caplan-Alison Brie commitment-themed film “Save the Date.”

Jones is represented by CAA, Matt Luber of Luber/Rocklin, and Dave Feldman of Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal, LaViolette, Feldman & Goodman. Mohan is represented by CAA, Anonymous Content, and Dave Feldman of Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal, LaViolette, Feldman & Goodman. Hypnotic is represented by CAA.

Starz is seemingly ramping up projects as of late; they recently announced they’re developing “WonderWorld,” an hour-long period drama starring Owen Wilson.
