NBC buys script from Courteney Cox, David Arquette

Net also purchases drama script from 'Ghost Whisperer' duo

NBC has bought a pair of scripts from a pair of husband-and-wife production teams based at ABC Studios.

One half-hour comes from David Arquette and Courteney Cox, who are currently separated but continue to jointly run shingle Coquette Prods, while the other is a drama from Ian Sander and Kim Moses, the married team behind “The Ghost Whisperer.”

Arquette and Cox may have drawn from their own life experiences given that the project, “Ten Years,” tracks the ebb and flow of a 10-year relationship for a recently separated couple in the center of a group of friends and family.

Howard Morris will write the single-camera project and executive produce with the couple.

Sander and Moses are teaming with scribe Daniel Taplitz on “The Next Insanely Great Thing,” which concerns the last company town in America when the suburban townspeople agree to become test subjects for a high-tech company’s social-media experiments, with unexpected, hilarious and emotionally gripping results.

ABC Studios has stepped up its efforts to sell projects outside of the Disney family this season. NBCUniversal is doing the same at its newly renamed Universal TV production unit, which sold two laffers to ABC earlier this month (Daily Variety, Oct. 3).
