CHICAGO - Valentine’s Day may still be a long way off, but for Camilla Belle and Tubi Originals, there’s already plenty of love in the air.
Tubi has announced that Belle ("Breakaway," "10,000 BC") will star in the Tubi Originals romantic comedy, "10 Truths About Love." Belle plays Carina, an accomplished relationship columnist with a love life that’s more than a little rocky.
David Lafontaine ("Molly’s Game") stars alongside Belle as Liam, Carina’s potential paramour.
"10 Truths About Love" will headline Tubi’s programming block for Valentine’s Day 2021. The film’s romance bona fides are considerable: it comes from former Lifetime and Hallmark Channel executive Barbara Fisher ("Ghosts of Christmas Past," "A Honeymoon to Remember"), working alongside Tom Berry ("The Rulebook of Love," "Just Clicked"), Suzanne Chapman ("Love in Translation," "Love Upstream") and Laurence Braun ("Say Yes to Christmas," "Love in Alignment").
Per a press release, Tubi’s Chief Content Officer Adam Lewinson had this to say of Belle’s casting:
Joining Belle and Lafontaine in the cast are Sebastian Marziali ("Party Mamas"), David Keeley ("Warehouse 13"), Kelsey Verzotti ("Top 10 Dorothy"), Paula Rivera ("Impulse"), Maya Cieszynska ("And He Was Gone"), Karn Kalra ("The Dictator’s Playbook"), Robert Ifedi ("Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker"), Danielle Verayo ("The Next Step"), Jennifer de Lucia ("Jupiter’s Legacy"), Kristen Kurnik ("Designated Survivor"), Neil Crone ("New York Minute") and Carly Street ("The Handmaid’s Tale"). Brian Roberts ("Everybody Loves Raymond," "The Drew Carey Show") directs a screenplay from Shannon Latimer ("A Whirlwind Wedding," "The Bride of Frank").
