MacDonald/Parkes Buy Action-Comedy Pitch

ON

Producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have bought an untitled action-comedy pitch from writers Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the idea came from research Trevorrow had done into the practice of police departments recruiting improv actors to help with low-level stings.

Trevorrow and Connolly’s storyline involves three actors who are brought in to help bust a DVD-bootlegging operation. When it turns out to be a front for much more nefarious activities, the comedy trio ends up on the run from crooks and cops alike with only their ad-lib skills as weapons.
