According to Variety, Paramount and MTV Films have tapped James Frey to script the adaptation of Prep, MTV's production of Jake Coburn's dark tale of New York City's prep schools.

Prep, set in the world of elite Manhattan prep schools, centers on a young man who's seduced by what's portrayed as Gotham's uninhibited party lifestyle. Over the course of a weekend, he reconciles with a girlfriend while trying to save her younger brother, who has been targeted by a local gang.
