Cathy Schulman is producing through her Welle Entertainment shingle along with Gabrielle Union and her production shingle I’ll Have Another.

The Idea of You centers on Sophie, a 40-year-old divorced mother. Sophie’s husband Dan left her for a younger woman, and now he has cancelled his Coachella trip with their 15-year old daughter. Sophie picks up the pieces and braves the crowds and desert heat. There, she meets 24 year-old Hayes Campbell, the lead singer of the hottest boy band on the planet, August Moon.

The novel caught a second wind as a popular escapist read during the pandemic, and it was published in 2017 by St. Martin’s Griffin.
