Marlo Thomas, diving into the feature producing realm, has sold “The Assistants” as a pitch to Touchstone Pictures with Barry Sonnenfeld and Barry Josephson attached to produce with her.
Thomas came up with the idea and made the pitch originally to Sonnenfeld/Josephson Prods., which has a deal with Disney/Touchstone.
Project is about a group of badgered office assistants who band together with information gathered from their demanding bosses.
Touchstone prexy Donald DeLine and senior VP Todd Garner will oversee the project for the studio. Sonnenfeld/Josephson exec Lisa Ellzey will supervise for the production company.
