DESCRIPTION:
(from USA's press release, May 2013) LOVE IS DEAD (pilot order): This single-camera comedy is set at a unique company that specializes in breaking-up romantic relationships -- rationally, compassionately, thoroughly -- on behalf of those who are willing to pay to not be around when it happens. It's the unconventional romantic comedy that asks: "Why, if love is so fickle, do we keep coming back for more?" Written and executive produced by Zev Borow ("Chuck"), the pilot is from Universal Cable Productions and Gaumont International Television. Katie O'Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee executive produce for Gaumont International Television.
