Rosenberg to pen drama for Col TriStar TV

Scribe busy with bigscreen projects

Hot feature scribe Scott Rosenberg (“Con Air,” “Beautiful Girls”) is eyeing the small-screen biz. Columbia TriStar TV has just shelled out an eye-popping high-six-figure fee for a drama script from Rosenberg, who also has a drama pilot in the works with Col TriStar and the WB Network.

No details are out about the new script, which has yet to find a network. The WB pilot is dubbed “Going to California,” a chronicle of the wild road adventures of two best friends who make their escape from a small town in New England.

From Fox to WB

“Going to California” was originally developed last year at Fox, but it migrated to the WB earlier this year. Helmer Ted Demme is attached to direct.

“Scott is absolutely one of the finest feature writers who’s crossing over into TV. He has such a brilliant sense of character,” said Sarah Timberman, exec VP of series development for Col TriStar TV.

Film work continuing

While his TV pacts percolate, Rosenberg is busy writing and producing “A Leonard Cohen Afterworld” for New Line Cinema, while Jerry Bruckheimer is in production on the Rosenberg-penned remake of the 1974 burnt rubber classic “Gone in 60 Seconds,” starring Nicolas Cage.

Rosenberg’s other feature scripting credit include 1995’s “Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead.” He also worked on last summer’s blockbuster “Armageddon.”

Rosenberg is repped by ICM’s Paul Haas and Barbara Dreyfus and attorney Tom Hunter of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Dimer & Klein.
