LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Salma Hayek, who recently broke up with her billionaire fiance, is developing a wedding-themed reality series with Merv Griffin Entertainment.

Hayek came up with the idea, whose format is being kept under wraps, and brought the concept to the company.

“The format is steeped in reality -- it’s not contrived,” said Roy Bank, president of television at Merv Griffin Entertainment. “It’s a unique storytelling angle on weddings that has never been seen on television before.”

The hour-long project is being shopped to both broadcast and cable networks, said Bank, who will executive produce with Hayek.

The actress and Francois-Henri Pinault, the father of her baby daughter Valentina Paloma, canceled their 16-month engagement last month.
