EXCLUSIVE: Former Californication executive producer Gina Fattore is reuniting with former Showtime programming topper Robert Greenblatt, this time at NBC. Fattore has set up high-concept multi-cultural family drama Holiday at the broadcast network, which she will write as well as executive produce with Dawn Parouse Olmstead (Prison Break) through Universal TV. The project stems from a two-year overall deal Fattore recently signed with Universal TV. Under the pact, she has been helping on the studio’s NBC pilot Mockingbird Lane pilot as well as developing.
Holiday is the story of a large extended multi-cultural family told only through the holidays. It may take planes, trains and automobiles to get to the lake house on Labor Day, the tree lighting on Christmas or the seder on Passover, but when they do, oh boy do temperatures run hot, secrets spill and band-aids get ripped off old emotional wounds. Fattore’s series credits also include Dawson’s Creek and Gilmore Girls. This marks the second NBC sale for Parouse Olmstead this season. She executive produces with Charlize Theron and Beau Flynn NBC’s modern-day Hatfields and McCoys drama created by John Glenn and produced by ABC Studios. On the cable side, she has a first-look cable deal at Warner Horizon. Fattore and Parouse Olmstead are with WME.
