Mandalay hangs ‘Five’

Mime acts on racing pitch

Mandalay Integrated Media Entertainment has acquired feature rights to Christopher Titus’ script “Five Seconds,” a drama set in the world of drag racing, with Titus on board to star.

Dan Angel (“Door-to-Door”) of the Hatchery will produce and Titus exec will produce along with Mime prexy David Salzberg and TheBizBox.com CEO Christian Barnes.

Logline for the drama aimed at family audiences is being kept under wraps. “Drag racing is the most exciting five seconds in sports and entertainment,” Titus said. “It’s a great setting for family drama.”

Mime is part of Peter Guber’s Mandalay Entertainment Group.

Titus’ eponymous laffer spent two seasons on Fox. He starred in the pilot “Future Tense” from Warner Bros. TV, Silver Pictures and NBC Studios; earlier this year, he inked with Comedy Central to star in, write and exec produce scripted laffer “Special Unit,” about a rebel cop whose offenses land him in charge of a squad of physically and mentally challenged officers.
