"Geek" God to Direct a "Minor" Comedy

by | November 9, 2005 | Comments

"Freaks and Geeks" creator Paul Feig has been tapped by Warner Bros. to direct "Unaccompanied Minors," a based-on-actual-events comedy that’s being described as "The Breakfast Club" in an airport.

The Hollywood Reporter says ""Minors" is based on a Jan. 6, 2001, segment of "This American Life." In a nine-minute radio essay, Susan Burton recounted her childhood experience of being snowed in at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport the day after Christmas, stranded with other kids from divorced families who spent the holidays flying from one parent to the other. The kids end up bonding and create a makeshift holiday for one another."
