Studio buys spec script from Kopelow, Seifert
Disney has invited “The World’s Most Annoying Man” to the studio, buying the comedy spec script from Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert for Andy Fickman to produce.
Plot revolves around a man who is forced to travel cross-country with his annoying brother in order to get to his own wedding.
Kopelow and Seifert are co-exec producers on Disney Channel’s new series “Jonas,” starring the Jonas Brothers.
Kopelow was a writer on Nickelodeon’s TV series “Kenan and Kel” and penned the feature comedy “Good Burger,” while Seifert also wrote for the kids cabler’s shows “Kenan and Kel” and “All That.”
Fickman will produce the comedy through his Oops Doughnuts shingle with partner Betsy Sullenger.
Fickman most recently helmed “Race to Witch Mountain” at the Mouse House. That pic, starring Dwayne Johnson, will unspool next year. He also helmed comedies “The Game Plan” and “She’s the Man.”
