Galgos tries on chick-lit 'Shoe'
EmptyGalgos Entertainment, a Manhattan-based production outfit, has nabbed film and television rights to Beth Harbison's comedic best-seller "Shoe Addicts Anonymous" from St. Martin's Press.
The novel, which hit the New York Times best-seller list in the spring, revolves around a support group for shoe addicts that quickly entangles four of its female members in one another's complicated lives.
Galgos partners Mark Bozek and Russell Nuce will produce. Writer-actress Laurie Taylor-Williams will adapt the book for the screen.
Former Home Shopping Network CEO Bozek, one-time entertainment lawyer Nuce and Bozek's wife Susan formed Galgos two years ago. Their first project headed to the screen is one close to writer-director Bozek's heart: an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs' home shopping parody "SelleVision." The original comedy "The Bobinski Bros. Funeral Home" is also on their plate.
Producer-screenwriter rep Loeb & Loeb negotiated the deal with Harbison's rep Irene Webb. (partialdiff)
