‘Lunch Lady’ Moves To Sony; New Writer Hired

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Lunch Lady, the graphic novel series that had been set up at Universal Pictures, has moved to Sony Pictures with a new writer, Fred Wolf. The series, from writer-illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka, is described as a PG-13 family/action comedy with a female superhero.

What we know about it: The protagonist is described as “a spatula-wielding crime fighter,” a school cafeteria server who clandestinely dishes out justice with the assistance of a friend. Meanwhile, three kids figure out something is up and set out to prove that she is living two lives — one as a fierce crime fighter and the other as a mild-mannered woman who serves up mashed potatoes and green beans.

Lunch Lady has several titles in the series — hence a possible franchise for the studio. David Beaubaire and Sara Rastogi are overseeing the project for Sony.

Amy Poehler was set to star in the project when it was at Universal,
