Paramount ‘Pledged’ to Soloway

'Six Feet' scribe takes on 'Sororities'

Paramount has signed “Six Feet Under” scribe and co-exec producer Jill Soloway to adapt “Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities,” which John Goldwyn is developing.

Goldwyn bought rights to Alexandra Robbins’ “Pledged” earlier this year to produce with Sara Colleton and Relevant Entertainment partners Michael Menchel and Michael Prevett. The former Par prexy, who segued into an exclusive production deal with the studio in January, hopes to mine the same comic turf as the studio’s “Mean Girls.”

Paramount exec VP Alli Shearmur is supervising “Pledged” for the studio.

Soloway made a deal with Free Press this summer to publish her memoir, “Why Jews Go to the Bathroom With the Door Open,” which looks at Hollywood, dysfunctional families, sex, self-obsession and growing up Jewish. She’s staged her own one-woman show, “Sit ‘n’ Spin,” and created “The Real Live Brady Bunch” stage show with her sister.

Soloway’s also adapting David Sedaris’ “Me Talk Pretty One Day” into a screenplay for Wayne Wang.

Goldwyn’s developing several other Par projects — a sequel to “The Italian Job,” a remake of “Le Convoyeur” with Penn Station, David Grann’s “City of Water,” Sabin Willett’s “Present Value” and Lorne Michaels projects “Curly Oxide and Vic Thrill,” “Sebastian Knight” and “Mall Cops.”
