Feature scribe Alice Wu is teaming with producer Neil Moritz for an hourlong drama project that aims to do for geeks what “Grey’s Anatomy” did for doctors.
Potential skein “Foobar” revolves around the lives of workers at a major software company who are pushing the boundaries of the tech world at the same time that they’re learning to be adults. It’s inspired by Wu’s own experiences working at Microsoft in the 1990s.
Moritz’s Original Film will produce with Sony Pictures Television. Wu will write the pilot script and, along with Moritz, serve as exec producer.
Wu wrote the 2005 feature “Saving Face,” produced by Sony and Will Smith’s Overbrook.
