Powderpuff Girls: According to Variety, Disney has purchased the comedy pitch Powderpuff Girls from first-time scribe Cindy McCreery for Tapestry Films and "Smallville" producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar to produce.

Family laffer revolves around an NFL coach who's fired, and ends up moving back to his small town in Texas, where he coaches his tomboy daughter's all-girl football team in an all-boy's league.

McCreery graduated from the Disney Fellowship in Screenwriting program just a month ago. She follows in the footsteps of fellow alums Don D. Scott ("Barbershop"), Reggie Rock Bythewood ("Biker Boyz") and Heather Hach ("Freaky Friday").
