Stan Zimmerman and James Berg have been brought on to write The Ivy Chronicles, a comedic drama that Jerry Weintraub ("Ocean's Thirteen" and Nancy Drew) is producing for Warner Bros. Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is based on the best-seller by Karen Quinn. The Ivy Chronicles follows the story of a New York woman who loses her Wall Street job, her husband and her high-end apartment. She tries to forge a new life with her two daughters by establishing a kindergarten referral service for well-heeled Manhattanites vying to get their tots into the country's choice schools.
Tracey Jackson wrote a previous draft.
