This article was corrected on July 11, 2002.

HOLLYWOOD — Scribes Abby Kohn and Mark Silverstein (“Never Been Kissed”) have sealed a new two-year deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Under the pact, Kohn and Silverstein will serve as consulting producers on the Fox network’s upcoming drama “Septuplets” and also develop projects for the studio. Michael Nankin is the skein’s executive producer.

Kohn and Silverstein were previously set up at Warner Bros. Television, where they created and exec produced short-lived Fox skein “The Opposite Sex.” That deal, however, expired last month (Daily Variety, June 7).

The duo also have the feature “Date School” in development at DreamWorks; Ben Stiller and his Red Hour Films shingle are also attached to the project.

Fest winner

Kohn and Silverstein, who graduated from the USC School of Cinema-Television at the end of 1996, immediately entered the scene with “Fairfax Fandango,” which won a 1997 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival award for best short.

They followed that up with “Never Been Kissed,” the 1999 romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore.

“Septuplets,” which comes from 20th Century Fox TV, revolves around the lives of seven 16-year-old siblings and their parents, who run a hotel in Southern California. Kip Koenig and Dawn Parouse also exec produce.

Kohn and Silverstein are repped by the William Morris Agency and 3 Arts Entertainment.
