Fox 2000 gets down to ‘Earth’

Pays low six figures for Seitzman pitch

Fox 2000 has paid a low six-figure sum for “Here on Earth,” a romantic drama pitch by Michael Seitzman for Friendly Prods.

Pitch, which was developed by Seitzman and producer David Friendly, tells the story of two young people who fall in love for the first time, only to find that one of them is terminally ill.

Fox 2000’s Ashley Kramer brought in the pitch and will oversee its development.

Friendly will produce and Stuart Birnbaum — who with Seitzman is writing the screenplay “One Last Fling” for Hollywood Pictures — will exec produce “Here on Earth.”

Seitzman and Friendly developed the project while the scribe and Birnbaum worked within Friendly Prods.’ “writer-in-residence” program.

Seitzman is repped by Ramses IsHak and Sophy Holodnik at William Morris.
