CBS Films takes scribe's 'Seminar'


Anyone can merely ground a troublemaking kid — but it takes macabre ingenuity to hire people to literally screw with his mind.

CBS Films has pre-emptively purchased Richard D'Ovidio's spec screenplay "The Seminar" in a low- to mid-six-figure deal.

The script combines elements of "Disturbia" and "The Game" to tell the story of an 18-year-old whose parents engage a mysterious consulting firm to mess with his reality.

Production executive Mark Ross brought the project into CBS.

D'Ovidio is repped by ICM and Media Talent Group. (partialdiff)
