ThinkFilm Turns On "The TV Set"

by | August 31, 2006 | Comments

Interested in a comedy that takes a no-prisoners, warts-and-all approach to network television production? How about if I told you it came from Jake Kasdan, son of high-quality filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan, as well as the guy who directed "Zero Effect," "Orange County," and several episodes of "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared"? Well, I’m interested…

From Variety: "ThinkFilm has snagged North American rights to "The TV Set," Jake Kasdan’s comedic look at the perils of the television biz. Pic, which stars David Duchovny and Sigourney Weaver, follows a neophyte scribe as he steers a fictional skein through a gantlet of stars, managers and a severe network exec (Weaver).

Distrib is planning a spring 2007 release.

Kasdan and Aaron Ryder produced; director’s former TV partner Judd Apatow ("The 40-Year-Old Virgin") and Kasdan’s helmer father Lawrence Kasdan exec produced."

Justine Bateman, Ioan Gruffudd, and Judy Greer co-star.
