Welcome to People” tells the story of a young businessman (Pine) who returns home after his estranged father’s death only to discover a surprising family secret — that he has an older sister (Banks) he never knew about and a young nephew.

Kurtzman and Orci are producing via their DreamWorks-based Paper Products shingle with Bobby Cohen.
