Cox, Arquette developing WB laffer

Scribes Pink, O'Neill will write, exec produce laffer

David Arquette is developing a half-hour comedy for the WB with wife Courteney Cox on board as exec producer.

Scribes Steve Pink (“High Fidelity”) and Patrick O’Neill will write and exec produce the laffer, which has been given a script commitment by the Frog. Arquette will play a twentysomething owner of a newsstand who decides to ditch his slacker life when he falls in love.

Arquette and Cox will both serve as exec producers via the duo’s Warner Bros. TV-based Coquette Prods., which has several other TV projects set up all over town.

Pink and O’Neill were two of the creators of the short-lived WB dramedy “Dead Last.” More recently, they worked on several ABC projects, including the 2002 comedy pilot “Sun Gods.”

Arquette’s feature credits include “Eight Legged Freaks” and the “Scream” franchise. His last major TV work was in Diane English’s 1995 CBS bike messenger laffer “Double Rush.”

Most recently, Coquette inked a deal with TBS to develop a comic reality show for the cabler (Daily Variety, Oct. 17). Launched earlier this year, Coquette is developing the series projects “Rehab” at HBO, “Dirt” for FX and “Midnightly News” and “Daisy, the All-American Girl” for Fox.

Shingle also has a first-look deal for scripted programming with WBTV. Thea Mann runs development for the company.
