Sex and the City Vet to Star in The Happiness Project Adaptation

After starring in one of the most popular television adaptations in recent memory, Sex and the City veteran Kristin Davis will star in an NBC adaptation of The Happiness Project.

Gretchen Rubin‘s memoir focused on a year “spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happy–from Aristotle to Martin Seligman to Thoreau to Oprah.” Rubin wrote 40 Ways to Look at Winston Churchill before publishing her bestselling memoir–dubbed “a cross between the Dalai Lama’s The Art of Happiness and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love” by author Sonya Lyubomirsky.

Here’s more about the show from The Hollywood Reporter: “The single-camera, half-hour project will be produced by Universal Media Studios and Mosaic. Kristin Newman (Chuck, How Met Your Mother) is in negotiations to write the pilot and executive produce.  Jimmy Miller and Dave Fleming will also executive produce.”
