Warner Bros. has picked up Due Date, a comic pitch by Alan Freedland and Alan Cohen, the writer-producers of Fox's King of the Hill.

Todd Phillips will produce through his WB-based Green Hat Films shingle.

According to Variety, the story is about a hard-charging business executive from L.A. whose wife is about to have their first child. The dad-to-be gets stuck in a snowstorm and must hitch a ride with a laid-back college kid to make it to the birth on time.

No production date has been set.
