Scribe Bush, NL going on 'Mancation'
EmptyNew Line is packing the cooler, throwing on some sunscreen and leaving for a "Mancation." The studio has picked up the comedy pitch from writer Jared Bush, with studio-based Benderspink producing.
The story follows a guy who decides that marriage has drained his little brother's manhood, so he drags him on a testosterone-filled getaway to help him get it back.
Chris Bender and JC Spink are producing, with the company's Jake Weiner exec producing.
New Line's Cale Boyter and Sam Brown are overseeing.
The deal was in the mid-six figures.
Bush, a writer-producer on the CW's "All of Us," and Benderspink recently teamed on the romantic comedy "Save the Date," in development at New Line.
Benderspink is developing the comedy "Torrente," a remake of the hit Spanish comedy, and the sci-fi thriller "Y: The Last Man" for New Line. The company has "Guy Not Taken" set up at DreamWorks and "A Fistful of Candy" at Columbia.
Bush is repped by CAA, Foursight Management and Rohner & Walerstein.
