  • 20:20 - James Frey (Author of I Am Number Four) Sells Three TV Projects to E!, Syfy & NBC
    James Frey is nothing if not prolific.

    His Full Fathom Five, the 5-year-old outfit behind best-sellers I Am Number Four and Endgame: The Calling as well as Frey's just-published Endgame sequel, Sky Key, has sold three TV projects through its newly extended Universal Cable Productions deal.

    There's KissnTell, originally an e-book from the transmedia company's digital imprint, which began releasing a book a week last fall. The Marc Halsey-penned comedy, now set up at E!, follows two young women who start an anonymous gossip blog. Before long, they find themselves living double lives — average single girls by day, life-of-the-party scenesters at night.

    At Syfy, FFF sold Haunted from Noga Landau, about the four adult children of self-proclaimed paranormal experts who are reunited following their parents' sudden and mysterious deaths. Together under one roof for the first time in years, they must overcome their issues with each other in order to solve the mystery of what happened to their parents and ultimately survive the literal ghosts from their past.

    Finally, NBC bought FFF's Michael Golamco-written supernatural kung fu drama Middle Kingdom, which is set in San Francisco, the "Middle Kingdom" between Asia and America, East and West, heaven and hell. It's here that modern-day people clash with ancient demons and the spirits of myth try to live among us. At the center of the drama project is Jack, an assistant medical examiner working for the SFPD who reluctantly and covertly takes on his ancient ancestor's mantle as a Demon Queller and uses the martial arts he's been taught since he was a child to set the balance aright between the two kingdoms. Dan Halsted and Nate Miller of Manage-ment are on board as producers.
