Terra Firma lands Cahan

Graduate signs for scribe duties with Fox, U

Fresh from graduating from the Disney Fellowship program, Jordan Cahan has landed two screenwriting jobs with Adam Herz production shingle Terra Firma Films. Cahan will pen a comedy for Fox and follow with a blind script deal from Terra Firma’s home studio, Universal.
