The show is loosely inspired by Elana K. Arnold’s book “What Girls Are Made Of.” In the book, Nina Faye was raised to believe that there is no such thing as unconditional love, meaning she will do anything for her boyfriend to prove her worthiness. But when he breaks up with her, Nina is lost and sets out to find out what the conditions of love really are.

Bloomgarden recently wrapped on the Netflix/Sony film “Fatherhood” starring Kevin Hart. She previously had a supporting role in the indie feature “Good Girl Jane.” She is repped by Innovative Artists and Grandview.

Donnelly will appear in Mindy Kaling’s HBO Max series “The Sex Lives of College Girls.” She has also worked as a staff writer on Season 2 of the Freeform series “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.” She is repped by CAA and 3 Arts Entertainment.
