DreamWorks has acquired Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky's comedy pitch The Intern, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ivan Reitman will produce through his Montecito Pictures production company.

The story centers on a middle-age, stay-at-home dad who decides to return to the work force and is forced to start as an intern.

Eisenberg and Stupnitsky, who teamed two years ago after meeting on the Fox lot, are staff writers on NBC's The Office.
