Jennifer Love Hewitt is taking her relationship drama to the small screen.

Well, behind the camera, at least.

ABC has ordered a script for Bad Taste in Men, developed by the Ghost Whisperer star and writer Austin Weinberg, reports. The comedy, which will not necessarily feature Hewitt, follows an unlucky in love Chicago woman.

Hewitt, 31, who is currently dating actor/director Alex Beh, has a wealth of relationship experience to draw from for her latest project.

Despite unsuccessful relationships with everyone from John Mayer to Scottish actor (and former fiance) Ross McCall, she says: "I'm a hopeless romantic. I love love. My middle name is Love. Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. I want to have a family and children. I am a sucker for every romantic comedy that comes out."
