Marcus Raboy (Friday After Next) has been tapped to direct the urban comedy Tow Truck for Our Stories Films and Broken Lizard.
Written by Darryl Francis and Dean Ward, the story follows two brothers who resurrect a moribund tow-truck business to earn enough money to save their neighborhood from commercial development.
Francis wrote the first draft while serving time at the Wayside County jail outside Los Angeles. He sent the pencil-written pages to manager Danny Sherman, who introduced Francis to comedy writer Ward. Together, Francis and Ward fleshed out the story, reports Variety.
Our Stories’ Tracey Edmonds is producing alongside Broken Lizard’s Richard Perello and Julia Dray.
Shooting is set to begin in late spring.
