McCloud to Pen Cover Your Assets


Lionsgate has hired new screenwriter Andrea McCloud to write its workplace comedy Cover Your Assets, says The Hollywood Reporter. Jon Shestack and Ginny Brewer are producing.

Described as a reverse Working Girl, McCloud’s pitch explores modern gender-role complications in a story about a wealthy and powerful female executive who gets involved with a new guy.

McCloud wrote a spec script titled Abbie & Weber 4ever while studying screenwriting at UCLA that garnered buzz and helped her get the “Assets” gig.
