Chupack and Kasdan will write and direct, respectively, as well as executive produce for 20th Century Fox Television with the latter's producing partner Melvin Mar. (Deadline.com)


TRAVELERS (ABC, New!) - David Magee (Life of Pi) has sold a potential drama to the Alphabet about "a man who brings his family to a wake for the father he never knew, only to discover that the doors inside his father's estate are time portals which trap them in the house and send them on a journey through history." Michael Green and 3 Arts Entertainment's Erwin Stoff are also on board to executive produce the 20th Century Fox Television-based project, which has a penalty attached. (Deadline.com)
