Endgame nabs romantic comedy spec
'You Complete Us' is from brothers Jim and Brian KehoeEndgame Entertainment has picked up "You Complete Us," a romantic comedy spec from Jim and Brian Kehoe.
Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment are producing with H2F's Chris Cowles and Chris Fenton. James D. Stern is producing via Endgame, which will finance.
The story revolves around a couple that schemes to keep their best friends from getting divorced but finds their own marriage suffering as a result. After un¬successful attempts to "date" other couples, they realize that for the health of their own relationship, they must get their best friends back together.
That Offspring Entertainment is involved seems appropriate, given all the real-life offspring involved. The Kehoes are brothers, as are Lucas Smith, the Endgame exec who brought the script into the company, and Matt Smith, a vp at Offspring who will act as exec producer. Shankman and Gibgot are brother and sister.
The Kehoes entered the comedy scene in 2003 when they wrote and directed the indie film "Overachievers," which starred Gary Busey. They have written and directed several shorts for the website Funny or Die and recently created "Voicemail," a Web series for ABC/Disney.
The duo, repped by H2F, also have the comedy "The Escape Artist" set up at Lionsgate.
