Uni verse: Pitch. Buy. 'Repeat'


Universal has picked up "Repeat After Me," a comedy pitch from Dave H. Johnson, for Scott Stuber to produce.

"Repeat" revolves around a couple who realize that they are reliving their disastrous wedding day again and again and start to question getting married in the first place.

The project was picked up pre-emptively, and the deal was in the mid-six against seven figures.

Richard Solomon and Alexa Faigen brought the project into Stuber Prods.

Johnson, a writer on "Jake 2.0," previously sold "Man Wedding" to New Regency; Principato-Young Entertainment is producing. He also has "Big Man on Campus" at Fox and "Sweet Child of Mine" at Paramount.

Johnson, who is a teacher at UCLA's Film School, is repped by ICM and Principato-Young.
