NPR Host to ‘Screw Everyone’ With New Movie (EXCLUSIVE)

Ophira Eisenberg is host of NPR's 'Ask Me Another'

Ophira Eisenberg’s comic memoir “Screw Everyone: How I Slept My Way to Monogamy” is headed for the big screen with Zucker Prods. acquiring feature rights.

Eisenberg, host of the weekly National Public Radio and WNYC game show “Ask Me Another,” recounted more than a decade and a half of relationships in “Screw Everyone” with an attitude of saying “yes” to nearly everything before getting married. The tome starts in the seventh grade in Calgary, Canada, with her first boyfriend and first kiss.

“If we were talking about food, I’d be considered ‘adventurous,’ in wine circles, ‘unpretentious,’ and in dating terms, ‘a slut,'” she said in the introduction.

Janet Zucker told Variety that she’s started meeting with writers about the adaptation. She decided to seek the rights to “Screw Everyone” while reading the book during production of a TV version of Hallmark Channel’s “Dear Dumb Diary,” on which she’s an exec producer.

“Those are two pretty different projects but we tend to have a pretty eclectic slate,” she added, noting that recent Zucker Co. feature projects include romantic comedy “Friends with Benefits,” political thriller “Fair Game” and P.J. Hogan’s comedy-drama “Mental.”

“I think Ophira is really funny and her book says a lot about how women are dealing with relationships now,” Zucker added.

The deal was negotiated by Jody Hotchkiss of Hotchkiss and Associates on behalf of McCormick and Williams Literary Agency.
