Scribes ‘Gaggle’ for New Line

Cook, Greenberg to pen romantic comedy

New Line is looking for love, hiring the scripting team of Emily Cook & Kathy Greenberg to write an ensemble romantic comedy titled “The Gaggle.”

Project, based on the site wtfisupwithmylovelife.com, aims to explore the intricacies of modern romance.

Site, run by Jessica Massa and Rebecca Wiegand, offers discussion and advice in a “post-dating” world in which “dinner and a movie” has been replaced by parties, kickball matches, work happy hours, networking lunches, social networking, texts and emails.

“A gaggle is the select group of guys in your life who compel you to put in that little bit of extra effort because they are, or potentially could be, romantic prospects,” the site notes.

Cook and Greenberg recently rewrote Disney’s “Gnomeo and Juliet” and have worked on “Ratatouille.” The pair also wrote “Working Stiff,” “Viagra Falls,” “Quad Couple” and “Diary”; Greenberg created Showtime’s “The L Word.”

Massa and Wiegand are also writing a book titled “The Gaggle,” based on interviews about romance and relationships.

Duo is repped by Gersh, Kaplan/Perrone and Gendler-Kelly.
