LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Prolific songwriter Diane Warren -- or at least her music -- is the inspiration for a romantic comedy being developed at ABC.

Warren's music will be peppered throughout the show about a fictional songwriter who finds success in her career while her love life is a mess, Billboard.com reported Friday.

One of the producers, Craig Zadan, said the show is not a biographical take on Warren, but will use songs from her catalog.

Among Warren's hits are LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live"; Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me"; Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart"; and Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."

Warren will serve as executive consultant for the project and write new songs for the show as well.
