Fox 2000 gets down to ‘Earth’

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.
