Apatow & Universal Enter Five-Year Engagement


Judd Apatow has set up the comedy Five-Year Engagement at Universal Pictures, reports Variety.

The project, which Apatow will produce with Shauna Robertson, reteams the studio with the duo behind the upcoming comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall: writer-director Nick Stoller and writer-star Jason Segel.

The story, described as a bawdy, couples comedy, charts the five-year engagement of a man (Segel) and his fiancee, following the ups and downs of their relationship.

Stoller and Segel, who met while working on Apatow’s TV series “Undeclared,” will write Five-Year Engagement together. Stoller, who made his feature helming debut with “Sarah Marshall,” is attached to direct, and Segel is set to star.
