Black Bear boards laffer

Black Bear Pictures will produce and finance the indie comedy “Adult Children of Divorce” also known as “A.C.O.D.”
The pic, which made the Black List of best unproduced screenplays, centers on a young man caught in the crosshairs of his parents’ bitter divorce. When he begins planning his younger brother’s wedding, he soon discovers he was the central figure in a book on children of divorce and jumps at the chance to set the record straight.

Stu Zicherman will helm from a script he co-wrote with Ben Karlin.

Teddy Schwarzman will produce through New York-based Black Bear along with Karlin and Tim Perell through Sperego Industries and Process Media. Bobby Cohen will exec produce.

Past credits for Zicherman include working on such skeins as FX’s “Lights Out” and ABC’s “Six Degrees.” Karlin most recently produced the Mandate/Summit comedy “50/50” starring Joseph Gordon Levitt.
