Paramount's Insurge Label Buys Comedy Script 'Fetch' (Exclusive)
Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who wrote "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol" for Paramount, are producing with their Space Floor partners Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner.
Paramount Insurge, Paramount's label responsible for low-budget movies such as the Paranormal Activity franchise, has picked up a comedy spec script titled Fetch from first-time writers Kristen Vincent and Tim Moran.
Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who wrote Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol for Paramount, are producing with their Space Floor partners Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner.
Logline details are being kept in the doghouse but it is described as an offbeat buddy comedy involving a uniquely talented dog and his owner.
Insurge vp of production Alison Small, who was responsible for pinpointing the spec and spearheading its acquisition, will now oversee the project.
Insurge, which focuses on low- and microbudgeted movies, seems to be in an active phase, with Fetch being the second buy in under a week. Last Friday, the label picked up the sci-fi project Prism.
Appelbaum and Nemec cut their teeth writing and producing for shows such as Alias and Life on Mars before going on to make their feature debut with Ghost Protocol. They also worked on the script for Paramount’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
Vincent and Moran are repped by WME and Mosaic.
