Bert Royal sets drama at CW, Warner Bros. TV

'Easy A' scribe takes on 'Dare' with Lin Pictures

CW has pacted with “Easy A” scribe Bert Royal and Warner Bros. TV to develop the action-thriller pilot dubbed “Dare.”

Royal is penning the script for WB-based Lin Pictures. He’ll exec produce with Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz.

“Dare” revolves around six young adults forced to play a deadly game of Truth or Dare.

“Dare” marks Royal’s second development prospect for the upcoming pilot season. He’s already set up a half-hour, “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth,” at ABC Studios with Jennifer Garner’s Vandalia Films banner.

On the feature side, Royal recently sold spec comedy “A Thousand Words or Less” to Fox Searchlight and is attached to direct.

Royal is repped by Paradigm and managed by R.E.D’s Dana Jackson.
