Disney 'Grounded' with spec

Buys sci-fi comedy for Mandeville

Disney has acquired "Grounded," a script by Paul Davidson for Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman to produce.

The plot of the sci-fi comedy is being kept under wraps.

E-Squared's Chris Emerson is executive producing.

Mandeville's Jenny Marchick brought the script into the studio, where it will be overseen by Todd Murata and Casey Wolfe.

Davidson is known for writing "Consumer Joe," a humor book that collected the author's oddball letters to corporations as well as their replies. He also wrote a book called "The Lost Blogs" and the ABC pilot "The Box."

Davidson is repped by E-Squared and attorney Gary Fenton.
