Francis-Feusner will also serve as showrunner on the series, which is a dramatic true account of an escaped convict, Bobby Love, and his wife Cheryl Love, who never knew his secret.
The Loves' story was featured in a 2020 multi-part series on Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York blog where it went viral and led to a 10-way bidding war for the rights.
Spencer and Brian Clisham will executive produce the show through Orit Entertainment, along with Washington and Pilar Savone through Simpson Street.
