Chris Nelson (“Ass Backwards”) has been tapped to direct the indie drama “Liv” at Black Label Media. Hilary Swank, Molly Smith and Trent and Thad Luckinbill will produce.
The story revolves around a 26-year-old visionary who becomes an overnight sensation when she’s handed her dream job as the editor-and face-of a multi-platform media experiment.
As she begins to lose hold of her image and her magazine, she must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice for success.
The film is based on a novel by Karen Yampolsky, and inspired by the life of magazine editor Jane Pratt. Ellen Shanman will pen the script adaptation.
