Romantic comedy spec sparked bidding war

CBS Films has optioned the romantic comedy spec “Plan B,” by TV scribe Kate Angelo.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the story is believed to center on a woman who sets out to be artificially inseminated and falls in love.

Todd Black, Jake Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing through their Escape Artists shingle.

Spec sparked a bidding war that involved multiple parties. CBS Films has jumped into the post-WGA strike lit market with resolve. Last month, the nascent company paid $1 million for Dan Fogelman’s untitled boomers-in-Vegas comedy pitch.

Angelo has an overall deal at ABC Television Studios and has a pilot in contention at ABC with Julie Bowen attached to star. Angelo’s credits include “Will & Grace” and J.J. Abrams’ “What About Brian.”
