The adapted screenplay for Dear Zoe was written by Marc Lhormer and Melissa Martin. The film's producers include Brenda and Marc Lhormer, Peter Phok, Christopher H. Warner, Brent Emery and Lizzie Friedman. Susan Cartsonis and Suzanne Farwell are executive producing. Production is set to take place in and around Pittsburgh.
