Emmett/Furla in reality effort with Menounos, Undergaro

Partners developing three projects for TV

Emmett/Furla Films is partnering with Maria Menounos and Keven Undergaro to launch an unscripted TV division through their Underman/Omegagirl banner.

It’s the first move into TV for Emmett/Furla, which has emerged in recent years as a prolific producer of independently financed movies in the mid-budget range with over 70 films produced.

The alliance is already developing a trio of projects:

• Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson’s “Teen Court,” based on the court program designed to redeem youth offenders under the guidance of Jackson and his friends;

• “Jailhouse Weddings,” based on a family of ex-cons-turned-ministers whose business is to wed prisoners to their outside partners;

• Stan Lee’s “Comic Book,” based on Lee’s search for a comicbook creator and character, with the winner landing a movie deal with Emmett/Furla.

Menounos is the co-host of entertainment newsmag “Extra.”

Menounos is “one of the hardest-working women in our industry,” said Randall Emmett, topper of Emmet/Furla. “Keven is a creative innovator who knows how to execute. Together, with the depth and resources of Emmett Furla Films, we foresee great success in the area of unscripted TV.”

Tim Sullivan, a development exec at Emmett/Furla, has been tapped as liaison.

Emmett/Furla is shooting “Lone Survivor” with Eric Bana and Mark Wahlberg, and its “Broken City,” starring Russell Crowe, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mark Wahlberg, will open Jan. 18 via Fox.

Underman/Omegagirl has sold their untitled reality show, centering on Menounos’ life in Hollywood, to Oxygen. Menounos and Undergaro also own online outlet Afterbuzz TV.
