D’Works buys ‘Sandwich’

Patchwork picking up pitch

DreamWorks has bought scribe Patricia Resnick’s pitch “Sandwich Man” for “Prince of Egypt” producers Pennie Finkleman Cox’s and Sandra Rabin’s Patchwork Prods.

Resnick, whose credits include the Dolly Parton starrers “9-to-5” and “Straight Talk,” will get a mid-six against high-six figures to pen the script.

The pitch deals with the so-called “sandwich generation” of middle-aged people with grown children and aging parents. It focuses on the trials and tribulations of a widower and a divorcee trying to forge a relationship.

Margaret French Isaac is the DreamWorks’ exec overseeing the project’s development.

Resnick is currently exec producing the Lifetime made-for “Alienation of Affection” and penning the CBS pilot, “Crises.”

She was repped in the deal by manager Jonathan Baruch and the William Morris Agency.
