Nash taking on telepics

Reality maven tries telepix

Reality maven Bruce Nash is expanding into TV movies, setting up a pair of telepics at ABC Family.

Projects reunite Nash with the cabler; they teamed in 2003 for the reality series “My Life as a Sitcom.”

Producer sold the movies, about an inept Cupid and an evil Lothario, respectively, to ABC Family topper Paul Lee. Nash will exec produce alongside Robert A. Kosberg.

“I had a deal with them to develop more reality shows, but I had these movie ideas that I figured I’d pitch instead and Paul bought them instantly,” Nash said. “With my feature business under way, this is an exciting time for the company.”

“Stupid Cupid” centers on a clumsy Cupid on probation with one last chance to help a couple fall in love. Story follows what happens when he misfires, accidentally hitting his own heart. Douglas Tuber and Tim Maile wrote the script.

In “Hell’s Belles,” three young women venturing into the work force for the first time make a Faustian bargain with a mysterious man who seduces them with promises to fulfill their wildest dreams. Deena Berezin and Chris Papierniak penned the project.

If greenlit, projects will join a slate of about a dozen original movies ABC Family produces each year.

Nash is best known for such unscripted hits as “Meet My Folks” and “Outback Jack” but has recently entered the scripted arena, setting up films at Revolution Studios, New Line, Paramount and Warner Bros.

Nash is also at work on another movie for another cable network and a pair of reality series set up at other channels.
