Genius centers on a group of strangers brought together in a downtown Los Angeles bar by their mutual ex-girlfriend Sackhoff.
Lew says he is fascinated by that impressionable time, which led him to the idea for Genius.
It was first popularized mostly by actor Tom Holland, best known as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man across the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Gersh repped-Sackhoff, who is currently shooting the Gold Circle thriller A Haunting in Georgia, will act as co-producer.
Lew is a quadriplegic and wheelchair-bound.
