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.”
