Alan Poul is going to "Plan B."

The "Six Feet Under" veteran is in final negotiations to direct the CBS Films fertility comedy. Jennifer Lopez is starring in the picture, which CBS will begin shooting in May.

In addition to serving as exec producer on "Six Feet Under," the UTA-repped Poul also has worked on the HBO marriage drama "Big Love" and NBC's "Swingtown." "Plan B" is his first feature directing gig.

Escape Artists is producing and Kate Angelo wrote the script for "Plan B," in which a single woman meets the man of her dreams on the very day she conceives a child through artificial insemination.
