Lions Gate is Down with "The Notorious D.A.D."

by | August 26, 2005 | Comments

According to Variety, screenwriters Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan have sold their comedy pitch to Lions Gate — which means you can get ready to meet "Notorious D.A.D.," which is a family comedy with precisely the plot you think it has.

The "story concerns a superstar rapper who loses everything and is forced to take a job as a nanny for his accountant’s kids while trying to resurrect his music career."

The writers are perhaps best known for their work on "Crank Yankers" and "The Man Show," but they also have "Delta Farce" in development, which is being described as "Stripes" meets "Three Amigos."
