Lifetime Television Picks Up Seven Additional Episodes of 'Lovespring International' From Eric McCormack/Michael Forman's Big Cattle Productions and Lionsgate

LOS ANGELES, May 11 -- "Lovespring International," the new half-hour improvisational comedy series from Eric McCormack and Michael Forman's Big Cattle Productions and distributed by Lionsgate, has been picked up for an additional seven episodes, it was announced today by Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Entertainment Services. Initially given a six episode order, the series centers on a dating service marketed to customers as an "elite Beverly Hills" company, despite its location in Tarzana, California. Comprised of dysfunctional misfits or "relationship counselors," they desperately try to find love for their clients although they have no idea how to do it for themselves. "Lovespring International" premieres Monday, June 5 at 11PM (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.

We feel 'Lovespring International' is truly funny, fresh and potentially breakthrough," said Daniels. "The current television landscape on cable does not include many new half-hour comedies and ordering a full 13 episodes gives it the best possible shot at success and time to find an audience."

"We are thrilled with the tremendous support Lifetime is giving to 'Lovespring International,'" said Kevin Beggs, President of Television Programming and Production, Lionsgate. "This is a terrific show with an outstanding cast, and we are excited to be able to bring a full 13 episode season to audiences to enjoy."

The series features guest stars each week some of which include McCormack himself, his "Will & Grace" co-star Sean Hayes, Dave Foley ("NewsRadio"), Mindy Sterling ("Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery") and Patrick Bristow ("Ellen"), to name just a few.

"Lovespring International" is produced by Big Cattle Productions and distributed by Lionsgate for Lifetime Television. Eric McCormack, Michael Forman, Guy Shalem and Brad Isaacs are the executive producers. The show was created by both Shalem and Isaacs.
