Scully has worked on Fox's animated series on and off for the past 15 years, including serving as executive producer/showrunner. He also was a writer-producer on the hit 2007 "The Simpsons Movie." Scully also served as a co-exec producer on CBS' "Everybody Loves Raymond."
Scully and wife Thacker-Scully most recently redeveloped their 2003 live-action comedy series "The Pitts" into an animated show for Fox last season. The two also created ABC's "Complete Savages."
The story follows a group of childhood friends who reunite in their early 30s to seek out a treasure that they tried and failed to find as kids. The script is based on an original idea by Novick.
Offspring's Matthew Mizel brought the treasure hunt project to Kristin Burr at Disney. Mizel will act as a co-producer and oversee for Offspring. Burr is shepherding for Disney.
Langley Perer is overseeing for Benderspink.
Disney-based Offspring is prepping Bedtime Stories, which Shankman will direct with Adam Sandler starring, and Step Up 2.
Benderspink is developing Bob the Musical at Disney. The company has the comedies Mancation at New Line and The Guy Not Taken at DreamWorks.
Pocha and Cohen are relative newcomers to the screenwriting scene. Pocha was on the production staff on ABC's Complete Savages, while Cohen was a story editor on WB Network's High School Reunion.
The duo are repped by Benderspink and attorney Sean Marks.
