Production company The Jackal Group has acquired the television rights to former New York State Assemblywoman Ann Margaret Carrozza’s book, Love & Money: Protecting Yourself from Angry Exes, Wacky Relatives, Con Artists and Inner Demons.
The book will be adapted into an unscripted series with Carrozza serving as a producer and host. The series will pull from her book’s aim of demystifying legal and financial decisions that some people find intimidating, and often costly.
Carrozza is a practicing asset protection and estate planning attorney who served for 14 years as a New York State Assemblywoman. Carrozza is regularly featured as an expert legal contributor to TV programs such as Dr. Phil, Access Hollywood, ET, Extra, Inside Edition, Good Morning America, FoxBusiness, The Doctors, and CNN.
“It comes as a surprise to many that we are more likely to do legal battle with a close friend, family member or romantic partner than with a stranger,” said Carrozza, in a statement. “These financially devastating explosions between loved ones and money cut across every single demographic. I am thrilled to be working with The Jackal Group on a program that showcases these hair-raising and wildly entertaining stories, while giving viewers the information and tools to protect themselves from such fates.”
Founded by Berman, The Jackal Group is a production company that is a co-venture with the Fox Networks Group (FNG) designed to develop and produce scripted and unscripted programming for FNG’s channels including Fox Broadcasting Company, FX/FXX, the National Geographic Channels and Fox International Channels.
