Universal Picks Up Broken Lizard’s Rogue Scholars


Universal Pictures has picked up Broken Lizard’s comedy Rogue Scholars along with an untitled project from the comedy group, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Rogue Scholars is a college comedy revolving around five unruly professors played by the members of Broken Lizard – Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske.

Details for the second project are being kept under wraps. Both are in the script stage.

For “Rogue,” the studio will try to cast college-aged comedians as the students, Broken Lizard as the teachers and an older generation as the administration.
