Lifetime has ordered the pilot Modern Love, based on a series of columns published in The New York Times. The project centers on newspaper science editor Simon McElvane, who must balance his collapsing marriage while raising an adopted 15-year-old daughter. He's then given the job of editor of the newspaper's "Modern Love" column, giving him the opportunity to learn more about life and love.

The show will weave in stories from The New York Times column. Jenny Bicks (The Big C, Sex and the City) created the show (from Sony and BermanBraun) and will executive produce with Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun, Gene Stein and Alan Poul (Six Feet Under, Swingtown).
