Paramount Pictures has decided to “Get a Life,” preemptively buying the family comedy pitch to develop with Par-based Jordan Kerner.
Project will be scripted by the team of Zack Estrin and Chris Levinson. Story revolves around the dilemma of two parents — who have just dropped their youngest daughter off at college and feel free for the first time in 22 years — who must deal with their son moving back home for “a while” following his college graduation.
Kerner Entertainment production head Paul Neesan will exec produce and supervise development.
Estrin and Levinson, who met when they were 8, wrote and produced several shows for the WB and were supervising producers on ABC’s “Miracles.” The duo recently completed a rewrite of the comedy “30 Wishes” for Kerner Entertainment and MPCA.
Levinson wrote for “Party of Five,” and Estrin was a development exec and received co-producer credit on Lions Gate’s “O.”
Paramount recently acquired rights to “Monster Mash” for Kerner Entertainment to develop. The shingle, which produced “Snow Dogs,” “Inspector Gadget” and “George of the Jungle,” is repped by CAA; Estrin and Levinson are repped by Endeavor.
