Inside Move: WBTV still shops Heche

Eye nabs her ex (script)

Anne Heche may still be headed for her own TV series, but it won’t be in a series from scribes Rob Greenberg (“Frasier”) and Les Firestein (“The Drew Carey Show”).

Warner Bros. Television, which has an overall deal with Heche, had been shopping her in a comedy from Greenberg and Firestein (Daily Variety, Sept. 4). NBC expressed an interest in the project but was willing to make at most a script commitment, according to industry insiders.

Execs at WBTV, however, were seeking a more substantial commitment for whatever project Heche ends up doing. They passed on the NBC offer; Heche then removed herself from the Greenberg-Firestein script.

WBTV took the project to the one place it hadn’t been pitched: CBS. The Eye had said it wouldn’t be interested in a Heche series since it has a laffer with Ellen DeGeneres.

With Heche no longer in the picture, however, CBS snapped up the script and is developing the project without any talent attached.

WBTV is now talking to several scribes on its roster and is looking to attach Heche to a new project.
