This picture's working titles were Fighting Irish and Laughing Irish Hearts. Three 1937 Hollywood Reporter news items referred to a film planned by Republic entitled Cartoon Lover and then Love's a Fable, based on an original story by Edmund Seward, which was about an animated cartoon studio and the romance of one of its cartoonists. Nancy Carroll was considering starring in the proposed film, which was to be produced by Leonard Fields. Although Edmund Seward's contribution to She Married a Cop has not been confirmed, it is possible that Republic used his basic idea for this film. Other 1937 Hollywood Reporter news items noted that Republic had purchased "Fighting Irish," an "original" story by Leo J. McCarthy, and that Sam Fuller, Ann Harolde, Dorrell McGowan, Stuart McGowan and Robert Bennett were to work on the script. Armand Schaefer was scheduled to produce at this time. The writers' contributions to She Married a Cop, however, has not been confirmed. Cy Feuer was nominated for an Academy Award in the Music (Scoring) category.
