Dave will also adapt the screenplay for The Last Harvest, which follows a woman named Georgia Ford, who is just two weeks away from her dream wedding when she sees her fiance walking down the street with another woman -- and a daughter he never told her about. Georgia runs off to her family’s vineyard in Sonoma California for the annual harvest, but discovers that her childhood home is under strain from family drama and a massive corporation looking to buy the winery. A publishing date has not yet been announced for the book.

WME and RWSG repped Dave in the deal.
