Feature Writers David Elliot & Paul Lovett Sell Drama To Fox, Rob Lieber Has Comedy At FX With Ryan Reynolds Producing

Writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett, whose feature credits include Four Brothers, GI Joe and the in-development sequel to Midnight Run, have sold a drama pitch to Fox through 20th Century Fox TV and Marty Adelstein and Shawn Levy’s studio-based 21 Laps/Adelstein. Titled Domain, the project is described as a contemporary take onĀ Catch Me if You Can. After his arrest, a brilliant young political “hactivist” is coerced into helping U.S. intelligence track down the source of a series of devastating national security leaks. Adelstein, Levy and Becky Clements executive produce. Elliot and Lovett are with Verve, Principato-Young and McKuin, Frankel & Whitehead.

Rob Lieber, co-writer of Disney’s Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, has sold a comedy project to FX. Titled The Great Zucchini, the half-hour is produced by Fox 21, with Alex Goldstone of Anonymous Content and Ryan Reynolds, Allen Loeb, Steven Pearl and Jonathon Komack-Martin of DarkFire executive producing. In the vein of Eastbound And Down and Louie, Great Zucchini follows a popular, charming and self-destructive kids performer as he attempts to grow up personally and professionally despite the fact he seems completely incapable of living like a responsible adult. Lieber is with UTA, Anonymous Content and attorney David Weber.

    • The show already has a built in fan-base, parents (and maybe some kids) from all over the D.C. area!

  • I just read you’re producing a TV Show Wayland Pines (or close to that title) from M. night Shamalan… Have you really thought this through? None of his recent pictures do well, actually are flops. I would rather have you spend that money elsewhere….
