Grammnet bows to power of ‘Isis’ pitch

Family action-adventure based on Davis comicbook

Paramount-based Grammnet Prods. has decided to seek power from the ancient god Isis.

Shingle, headed by Kelsey Grammer, has acquired tyro scribe Ali Russell’s “Isis” pitch in a preemptive low- against mid-six-figure deal as a vehicle with feature and TV potential.

Family action-adventure, described as being in the vein of “Romancing the Stone” meets “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” centers on a young girl who finds the bracelet of Isis and inherits her powers in addition to awakening a dark force. Project’s based on the Darren Davis comicbook of the same name.

Grammer & Joanne Asquith Weiss will produce through Grammnet, along with Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment, who manages Russell.

Jessica Hochman Casale, who brought the project in and will oversee for Grammnet, also will share in a producing capacity with Daniel Alter, who manages Davis.

The 21-year-old Russell recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting and was scouted by Weaver out of the UCLA writing program. She sees the lead character as a female Peter Parker, someone who is awkward and doesn’t fit in who develops superpowers.

Grammnet and Energy also have set up a pair of comedies — “Inner Bitch” by Kara Holden and “Honeymoon From Hell” by Mark Yosowitz.
