Brett Ratner & Topher Grace In Fox TV Biz

Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: Fox has picked up for development 2 projects from Friends alumni: Brian Buckner’s How the Other Half Hamptons, which is produced by Brett Ratner, and R. Lee Fleming Jr.’s Anthem, produced by Topher Grace. Both are from 20th Century Fox TV. Hamptons, which 20th TV co-produces with Ratner’s RatTV, is part of the hot trend of book adaptations this buying season. It is based Jasmin Rosemberg’s novel, which in turn was inspired by Rosenberg’s New York Post column about her Hamptons share-house experience. In the vein of Animal House, Hamptons revolves around friends Jamie, Rachel and Allison who don’t have the old-school Hamptons money but still want to enjoy the trappings of the Hamptons lifestyle and find the men of their dreams, so they pile into a shared house together. Buckner, who works on HBO’s True Blood, is writing the script and is executive producing with Ratner. This is Ratner’s second sale this development season. He is also executive producing writer Sascha Penn’s drama Unknown at Fox. Ratner and Buckner are with CAA. Read More »

Action Classic ‘CHiPs’ May Get A Series Reboot Produced by Topher Grace

By | Wednesday August 4, 2010 @ 9:02am PDT
Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: I hear a new take on the 1970s comedic action drama CHiPs is in the works at Warner Bros Television. Numbers creators Nicolas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton are writing/exec producing, and Topher Grace would exec produce the reboot with his partner at Sargent Hall Prods Gordon Kaywin. Topher will not be starring. Deals are still being finalized, and the project has not been taken out to the networks yet. But I bet it will spark solid interest given the heat that the revamp of another 1970s action procedural, CBS’ new series Hawaii Five-0, has been garnering going into fall.
