Brent Forrester and Mindy Kaling (“The Office”) have sold their romantic comedy pitch “The Low Self Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie” to Mandate Pictures and Mr. Mudd who previously collaborated on “Juno” says Variety.
The story centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. Just as she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, her life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.
Kaling will play a supporting role. John Malkovich, Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith will produce.
