Duchovny and Leoni Were Born to Rock


CBS Films has acquired the comedy spec Born to Rock from writers Jess Walter and Mark Steilen, with David Duchovny, Tea Leoni and Dan Cortese producing and And Then’s Susanna Jolly on board to executive produce.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project revolves around a group of struggling, aging rock musicians who, because of a mixup in their demo tape, end up catching a record executive’s attention for a children’s song written on a lark, then find unlikely success as a Wiggles-type children’s band.

And Then conceived and developed the script, signing on Steilen and Walter to pen the screenplay.
