Bass, Iovine woo Fox

Pitch focuses on family's recovery from a death

Twentieth Century Fox has made a strong six-figure commitment to an untitled romantic comedy pitch by Ron Bass and Vicki Iovine, the first time the duo has hooked up for a writing collaboration.

Bass is a romantic comedy fixture, but Iovine, wife of music exec Jimmy Iovine, is best known for writing the bestselling “The Girlfriends’ Guide to…” series for Penguin Putnam. Iovine, whose books have covered subjects ranging from surviving motherhood to raising toddlers, just completed a new deal for eight books that will be published by Penguin Putnam under a new Girlfriends’ Guide imprint.

Details about the Fox film were scant, but the project Bass and Iovine pitched will focus on a family’s recovery from a death. CAA repped the pair.
