Prince charms Studios USA

Peacock, Frog take chance on projects

Scribe/helmer Jonathan Prince (“Ask Harriet”) has inked an overall series development deal with Studios USA.

Pact is already bearing fruit, with Studios USA setting up Prince projects at two webs.

NBC has bought a script for an untitled hour set in a restaurant run by a single dad and his children. Action takes place mostly through the p.o.v. of an adult daughter trying to break off from the family.

Over at the WB, Prince is developing a script for a half-hour comedy about a young Brit witch sent to the U.S. to serve as a nanny for a family of mere mortals. Jill Murray is the co-creator of the project, dubbed “The Misadventures of Fiona Plum.”

“Jonathan Prince is not only a wonderful writer and director, he is one of the most entrepreneurial producers working in television,” said Studios USA programming prexy David Kissinger. “His ambitions are as inexhaustible as his talent is great. We hope to be in business with him for many years to come.”

A former thesp, Prince was a scribe and exec producer of the Fox laffer “Ask Harriet” and served as co-exec producer of NBC’s “Something Wilder.” He’s also helmed episodes of numerous skeins, including “Party of Five,” “Rude Awakening,” “Dream On” and “Blossom.”

On the feature side, Prince wrote the George Burns comedy “18 Again!” and directed “Camp Nowhere.” He also co-wrote an upcoming remake of the Jerry Lewis/Dean Martin starrer “The Caddy” and is a producer on helmer Betty Thomas’ upcoming pic “R3.”
