Executive producing The Last Thing He Told Me are Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine; Roberts, Marisa Yeres Gill and Lisa Gillan through their Red Om Films banner as well as Dave and Singer. The series marks the second collaboration between the married duo of Dave and Singer.

The novel The Last Thing He Told Me will be published in hardcover by Simon & Schuster on May 4. The book was optioned by Hello Sunshine prior to its release, and the company brought it to Roberts. With her on board, Hello Sunshine partnered with 20th TV, where Singer has an overall deal via Touchstone TV, which was recently merged with 20th TV, part of Disney TV Studios. The project was taken out to the premium marketplace, sparking a bidding war.
