Eisenberg and Stupnitsky are a writing/directing/producing team who have each been nominated for multiple Emmy and WGA awards and won the 2007 WGA comedy series award for “The Office.” They also wrote the Cameron Diaz comedy “Bad Teacher,” which grossed more than $216 million in worldwide box office for Sony.

Point Grey’s credits include “Sausage Party,” “Neighbors,” “The Night Before,” and “The Interview.” Upcoming projects include “The Pact,” starring Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and John Cena for Universal, and A24’s “The Disaster Artist,” starring James Franco.

Eisenberg and Stupnitsky are represented by WME, Mosaic, and Robert Offer at Sloane Offer Weber & Dern. Point Grey is represented by UTA and Fred Toczek and Chris Abramson of Felker, Toczek, Suddleson Abramson. Dan Freedman of Good Universe negotiated deals on behalf of the producers.
