Carol scores hat trick

Latest script to WB

NEW YORK — In a midsix-figure deal, Warner Bros. has bought the spec script “Nanneeez” by screenwriter Shaina Carol, marking the scribe’s third material sale this year in three attempts.

“Nanneeez” is described as a hip subversive comedy about the upstairs-downstairs exploits of four twentysomething Hollywood Hills nannies who toil for the rich and famous. The film will be produced by Adam Schroeder.

Carol also sold the comedy “Triple-Take” to Fox and “Fothermuckers” to MTV Films and Paramount. All three were spec script efforts brokered by her APA agent David Saunders, the latest coming at a time when little commerce was taking place in town.

Blow the shofar

“We sold ‘Triple-Take’ the last week before Christmas, when nothing sells, and ‘Nanneeez’ the last week of August, when nothing sells,” Carol said. “I’m asking my agent to send my next spec out on Yom Kippur to keep the streak going.”

Schroeder’s producing the Jackie Chan starrer “The Tuxedo” and is in pre-production on “Emperor Zehnder” at WB, where he has a first-look deal. WB veep Polly Cohen brought in the material.
