Mike Judge setting up ‘Extract’

Jason Bateman to star in comedy

Mike Judge will direct and Jason Bateman will star in the comedy “Extract,” the first project to be produced under Judge’s new shingle, Ternion Prods., which he formed with writer-producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.

Ternion is fully financed to develop film, TV, digital and new-media projects through a finance and development deal with Media Rights Capital. The shingle will also produce films and TV projects through the traditional studio and network route.

Penned by Judge, “Extract” explores what it’s like to be the boss when everything seems to be shifting around you.

Miramax will distribute in North America.

Altschuler is producing alongside Michael Rotenberg. Tom Lassally and Krinsky exec produce.

Ternion is bringing its first series to the smallscreen under its deal with MRC. “The Goode Family,” which will air on ABC, was created by Altschuler, Judge and Krinsky, who are also exec producing along with Rotenberg and Lassally. The series is currently in production on its first 13 episodes and will bow in the first quarter of 2009.

MRC has also preemptively acquired Altschuler and Krinsky’s spec film script “Brigadier Gerard.” Comedy is set in the Napoleonic era and is based on a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle. Ternion is attaching a director to shoot in 2009.

Judge, who wrote and directed “Office Space,” is the creator of “Beavis and Butthead” and “King of the Hill,” which he produced with Altschuler and Krinsky.

Altschuler and Krinsky wrote “Blades of Glory” and are penning “Brothers of Invention” in addition to finishing work on “The Jetsons.”

Bateman next will be seen in “Hancock” alongside Will Smith and in the Kevin MacDonald-helmed political drama “State of Play.”
