WB bites on ‘Teething’

Warner Bros. has sunk its teeth into a comedy spec from writing duo Andrew Kurtzman and Elliot Wald about a married couple who adopt a baby and subsequently discover that the child is a vampire, according to unofficial sources at the studio.

Payday for the spec, titled “Teething,” was worth approximately $400,000 against a $1 million back end, according to sources close to the deal.

No producers are attached to the project, and no start date has yet been determined, according to studio sources. WB’s Jacqueline Marcus and Tom Lassally are the execs on the project.

As a team, Kurtzman and Wald have penned the comedies “Down Periscope,” and “Camp Nowhere,” and have written for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” They’re repped by Endeavor.
