According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox is picking up two comedies for Robert Teitel and George Tillman's State Street Pictures: one is written by Norman Vance and the other is a pitch by Adam Sztykiel.
Champions, written by Vance, is a family comedy in the vein of Parenthood that deals with a middle-class black family as it tries to resolve issues brewing over three generations. Malcolm Lee is in negotiations to direct the picture, which would fall under the Fox 2000 banner, headed by Elizabeth Gabler. Lee is the director of Roll Bounce, the upcoming State Street-produced film that Vance also wrote and stars Nick Cannon and Bow Wow.
The second project is an untitled high school comedy by Sztykiel for Hutch Parker's TCF.
