Interwoven in the narrative are glimpses of the roller-coaster ride that was the couple's 14-year romance.

Showalter also produced with Jordana Mollick under their Semi-Formal Productions banner. Parsons also produced with Todd Spiewak and Alison Mo Massey under their That’s Wonderful Productions banner. Ausiello will serve as an executive producer.
