Elizabeth Banks Developing Conspiracy Drama and Buddy Cop Comedy for The CW and ABC

Following their box-office success with the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions is now making a splash on the small screen.

Brownstone Prods., founded by the husband-and-wife team, inked an overall television deal at Warner Bros. last summer, and has since sold projects to four different broadcast networks this development season. The booming shingle is developing new series with ABC and the CW, plus is negotiating another unannounced series with a cable network, Variety has learned exclusively.

ABC bought a script for a buddy cop action comedy, “The Trustee,” hailing from “Smurfs” and “Baywatch” scribes Jay Sherick and David Ronn, which will be executive produced by Banks and Handelman. The project follows a very good, but slightly reckless narcotics detective who finds out that her police station’s “trustee” — a nonviolent felon assigned to help cops with odd jobs, filing, custodial work — has insight into a case she’s trying to crack, and the two women are forced to team up.

Brownstone is also developing “Feral” at the CW from writer Daegan Fryklind. The drama centers around 20-year-old Trident Marven, who steps out of the woods after years of isolation, unaware that she carries a secret which puts her at the center of an unfurling conspiracy.

Also, Holy Sh*t - Comedy Starring Nick Thune, Produced by Mila Kunis in Development at ABC

Actor-comedian-musician Nick Thune is set to co-write, executive produce and topline Holy Sh*t, a workplace comedy for ABC, executive produced by Mila Kunis through her Orchard Farm Productions.

Written by Thune and frequent collaborator Kevin Parker Flynn, Holy Sh*t follows the staff of a struggling church and their edgy new pastor (Nick Thune) as they fight to survive in the modern world.
