Maggie Friedman (Dawson’s Creek, Once and Again) will write the pilot script for the dramedy, which follows the adventures of a 30-ish woman whose unique psychotherapist allows her to travel back in time to redo her greatest regrets in life; it will be set in Philadelphia, EW has learned exclusive. The original version of the show is still awaiting its fourth-season pickup on home network CBC, though exec producer Aaron Martin promises the season, if it happens, will answer “every question” about Erica’s therapy and her time travel – “no Lost mystery, no Inception spinning-top teasing.” The theme of the final season will be, he says, “coming full circle, fulfilling your purpose, and finding joy.” Being Erica’s third season airs on SoapNet starting Jan. 26.
