To Love and Die is the title of an American television action comedy-drama starring Shiri Appleby and Tim Matheson, and created by Sara Goodman. The pilot, killed in 2006,[1] was greenlit to series on the USA Network in July 2007, with a 12-episode order that was planned to air in 2008.[2] The 2-hour pilot finally premiered on December 30, 2008 as a television movie,[3] receiving little promotion. The series is believed to be defunct.[4]
