'Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth' in place at ABC Studios

Jennifer Garner’s Vandalia Films is developing a half-hour comedy at ABC Studios based on the book “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth.”

Tome, by writer Alexandra Robbins (“Pledged,” “The Overachievers”), follows seven different students with distinct quirks and shows how those personalities will prove valuable in adulthood.

Bert Royal, who penned the laffer “Easy A,” will write the pilot. Donna Roth and Susan Arnold will produce.

Garner, who runs Vandalia with parter Juliana Janes, is set to co-star in the indie film “Butter,” which screened at the Telluride Film Festival and will unspool next week at the Toronto Film Festival.

Garner has history with ABC, toplining the Alphabet’s spy drama “Alias” for five years.
