‘Floral’ pitch blossoms at ABC

Lew to pen pic set in the early '80s

The Jinks/Cohen Co., Touchstone Television and writer Scott Lew have sold a pitch for an hour dramedy, “Floral Drive,” at ABC.

Lew is penning the script, which is set against the newly computerized world of 1981 and examines the anxiety of becoming a young adult faced by four best friends in the Chicago suburbs who are preparing to enter the eighth grade.

Lew pitched the idea to Jinks/Cohen, which brought it to Touchstone. ABC acquired the project last week, with development now overseen by Touchstone TV’s VP drama series, Suzanne Patmore, and exec Josh Berry.

Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, the Oscar-winning producers of “American Beauty,” also recently sold the original musical “Livin’ Dolls” to ABC’s “Wonderful World of Disney” (Daily Variety, Aug. 14).

Lew, who is repped by the William Morris Agency and Principato-Young Management, just completed writing the comedy “Super Butt Freak” for producers Alan Riche, Tony Ludwig and Robert Kosberg at Bill Mechanic’s Pandemonium.
