Former This Is Us star Mandy Moore is eyeing a return to the screen with Twin Flames, a series inspired by the hit Wondery podcast, which is in development at Hulu. The project, on which Moore is teaming with former This Is Us co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger and Guilty Party creator Rebecca Addelman, hails from This Is Us studio 20th Television where Moore has signed a new pod deal for her Roll With The Punches Productions.
Under the multi-year pact, Moore and Head Of Development and Producing Partner Averie Joy Maikalima O Makua Huffine will continue to develop and produce series projects for the studio, including an adaptation of The Cut/ New York Magazine article “My Mom Has No Friends.”
“Mandy is one of those rare and exceptionally talented artists who’s as brilliant on the screen as she is off, with a keen eye and natural instinct for uncovering fascinating material. Working with Mandy over the course of her award-winning six years on This Is Us, cemented our desire to extend our relationship with her, and we are incredibly excited to develop projects together in the years to come.”Karey Burke, President, 20th Television.
Moore is set to star in and executive produce Twin Flames, written and executive produced by Addelman.
The series tells the true story of two women. They find themselves seduced by the online teachings of a couple who preach that every person has a soul mate called a “Twin Flame” and must do whatever it takes to be with that person. Desperate to find true love, these two are swept into the increasingly dangerous waters of the Twin Flame Universe.
Aptaker and Berger developed the project under the deal their The Walk Up Company has at 20th TV. The duo executive produce alongside The Walk Up Co.’s Adam Londy. Wondery’s Jen Sargent, Marshall Lewy and Aaron Hart also will executive produce.
Twin Flames hit #1 on the Apple Podcast charts and is on track to be Wondery’s most downloaded new series of the year.
