It's not a group therapy session, but a staged reading for "The Good, the Bad and the Unbelievable: Real Life Stories of Online Dating," a book-in-progress by Robin Mesger, senior veep of the Lippin Group, and Stacey Levin, director of current programming at 20th Century Fox TV.
Mesger and Levin have been pals and professional colleagues for years. "Unbelievable" grew out of a plan for a chapter in a novel on which Mesger was toiling. When Mesger and Levin put their heads together, they realized they had more than a chapter involving online dating; they had a book.
With the book almost complete, the pair hope to generate buzz among lit agents for the property as they finish it off and prepare to shop it to publishers. Actor pals who have volunteered to help them with buzz-generation at the reading include Pamela Adlon, Krista Allen, Mike Bortone, Kimberly Caldwell, Jessica Collins, Sarah Michelle Gellar (pictured top left), Tony Hale (pictured top right), Amy Sloan and Liza Snyder (pictured right).
