Hiring two names to carry out the task instead of just one, Warner Bros. Pictures has brought both Stan Zimmerman and James Berg into its pit to replace Tracey Jackson in working on the script of its new comedic drama "The Ivy Chronicles."
An adaptation of Karen Quinn's best-seller novel, the project follows the life journey of a New York woman as she loses her job at Wall Street, her husband, and her high-end apartment. Trying to build a new life with her two daughters, she then establishes a kindergarten referral service for well-heeled Manhattanites vying to get their tots into the country's choice schools.
Names to direct and star have not yet been revealed, but it is learned that Jerry Weintraub will produce with Jessica Goodman overseeing for Warner Bros. The former, who recently got honored as producer of the year at this year's ShoWest Convention, has already had two releases set for this summer, namely "Ocean's Thirteen" and "Nancy Drew."
