Universal, Benderspink take ‘Trip’

Studio picks up Stacey Harman's comedy pitch

Universal Pictures has picked up the comedy pitch “Business Trip” from writer Stacey Harman.

Benderspink, behind the Warner Bros. hit “The Hangover,” will produce the laffer about a group of women who go on a corporate trip but wind up doing anything but business while on company time.

Benderspink director of development Langley Perer and manager Jill McElroy conceived the idea with Harman after going on recent business trips.

Chris Bender and JC Spink will produce the pic, while Perer and McElroy will serve as producers in some capacity.

Harman also penned the romantic comedy “Shared Fare,” which DreamWorks bought for Brian Robbins to produce and potentially direct.

Benderspink has “Leap Year” in the works at Spyglass, “Bob the Musical” at Disney and “Burt Dickenson, Most Powerful Magician on the Planet Earth” at New Line.

Harman is repped by UTA, Benderspink and Patti Felker.
