Orange Dragon Productions, founded by Nate Berkus, Sheri Salata, Jeremiah Brent, and Nancy Hala, is adding to its scripted development slate with Quantum Love based on the life of TV relationship expert, New York Times best-selling author, love coach and sex therapist, Dr. Laura Berman.
“Dr. Berman’s real-life story is rich with the kind of jaw-dropping reality that makes for a superb scripted series,” said Sheri Salata, Executive Producer. “Quantum Love is a 30-minute scripted show with comedic and dramatic storylines that get to the root of what matters so much in life: love, happiness and sex. What do we like and why do we like it? Why do we attract certain people into our lives? How can we become the divining rod to call in true love? How do we get satisfaction, for real? What is going on in small town American bedrooms? And because these stories are based on the life experiences of renowned sex therapist Dr. Laura Berman, we know they’re real.”
Executive Producer Nancy Hala adds, “Dr. Laura Berman is the Elle Woods of sex therapy. She’s a cross between perky blond cheerleader and ring-on-every-finger, kaftan wearing earth mother. There’s a mystical, magical element to Quantum Love. It means there’s more going on here than meets the eye. The quantum nature of love connects us all because we are more alike than not; all part of the same energetic soup.”
“This series is the perfect example of why we founded Orange Dragon Productions, added Executive Producer Jeremiah Brent. We want to contribute in a disruptively compassionate way to the “what is normal?” cultural conversation. Partnering with Dr. Laura Berman to co-create this series is a thrill for all of us. She brings soul to sex and we intend to make that a part of our vision for Quantum Love.”
“I am honored to be partnering with Orange Dragon Productions on this project that is so close to my heart,” said Dr. Berman. “I’ve always said that my real life is way more interesting than fiction, and this is my opportunity to show the world how true that is.”
