Lakeshore Entertainment has offered a salute to “Barking Orders,” snapping up Scott Sommer’s family comedy spec and setting it up to be produced by chairman-CEO Tom Rosenberg, president Gary Lucchesi and Craig Berenson.
Plot details of the high-concept project are being kept under wraps. Project was brought in by VP of acquisitions & co-productions, Bic Tran.
Sommer is writing “Open Season 2” for Sony Animation and has set up “Daniel Boone” at Fox. Berenson’s producing “Snakes on a Plane” for New Line.
