Fox chooses ‘Chicklets’

Damon seals deal for six figures

Fox 2000 is getting “Chicklets,” a spec by Lamar Damon, in a low- against mid-six-figure deal. Kenneth (Babyface) and Tracey Edmonds’ company, Edmonds Entertainment, will produce.

Pic is about four outsider high school girls who form a rock band and play music that expresses their particular brand of teenage angst. As the band becomes successful, the young women are forced to re-evaluate their feelings about success and popularity.

The spec sale is Damon’s second in recent months. He also has a project set up at DreamWorks, entitled “Slap Her, She’s French,” which he co-wrote with Bob King.

Damon’s experience includes a stint as a writer on the staff of MTV’s series “Road Rules.”

“Chicklets” credits likely will set Tracey Edmonds as producer, and Kenneth Edmonds as exec producer. Edmonds creative exec Patrik Polk brought “Chicklets” to Edmonds and Fox2000.

Next month, Polk will make his directorial debut with his romantic comedy “Punks,” which is produced by Edmonds’ indie-film arm E2. Edmonds Entertainment is based on the Fox lot with a first-look deal with Fox 2000.

Damon is repped by agents Valarie Phillips and Matt Bedrosian at Paradigm, and by attorney James Adams, of Frankfurt, Garbus, Klein & Selz.
