The band’s frontman, Tom Higgenson, will be pitching the series soon.
The Plain White T’s biggest hit might soon turn into a romantic drama series.
Per THR, the band’s popular song “Hey There Delilah,” which centers on a long-distance relationship, is being eyed for a TV adaptation. Lively McCabe Entertainment and Primary Wave will work with the band to develop the potential show.
“Hey There Delilah” originally appeared on Plain White T’s All That We Needed
Plain White T’s frontman and songwriter Tom Higgenson, and writer Jeremy Desmon, will be among the producers pitching the series to several networks later this month. If ordered, the show will expand the story within the song about a singer-songwriter and a New York City university student, and their long-distance flirtation.
“Hey There Delilah” was released in 2006 and spent 35 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, and earned two Grammy nominations. It’s also been licensed on shows such as Orange Is the New Black and Family Guy.
