New Line sparks to ‘$40,000 Man’

New Line has bought “The $40,000 Man,” a comedy spoof written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and set it up with Benderspink. Story centers on a legendary astronaut and true American hero who finds himself horribly injured in a car accident and rebuilt by the government to be a bionic man, on a budget of $40,000 — which makes him not that bionic. It’s the first script sale for Daley, who’s racked up lengthy TV credits including “Kitchen Confidential” and “Freaks and Geeks.”
