The single-camera romantic comedy is about two set-in-their-ways adults, Derek (yet to be cast) and Chloe (Dennis), who are challenged by very unexpected strangers to become the best versions of themselves in order to find love and possibly each other.

Chloe is a self-made, no nonsense bridal boutique owner and dressmaker who has always known she’ll need to outwork everyone around her in order to succeed. But in addition to other goals, Chloe has just added one more thing: someone to open her heart to.

Someone Out There was originally ordered to pilot in January 2020 but was halted due to Covid-19.  The US version comes from Matt Hubbard and The Good Place writing team of Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan, and Universal Television. Hubbard, Siegal, and Morgan are writing and executive producing the series.
