Touchstone goes ‘Home’

Hawley brothers sell male-driven comedy spec

Touchstone Pictures has acquired “Home Free,” a comedy written by sibling scribes Alexi and Noah Hawley, in a mid-six-figure deal.

Storyline is being kept under wraps, but it’s a male-driven comedy described as a middle-aged “Risky Business.”

It’s the first big studio spec sale for the brothers.

Alexi Hawley scripted the “Exorcist” prequel “Dominion” for Warner Bros. and “Garfield 3” for Fox, while Noah Hawley most recently has been writing for the Fox series “Bones.”
