Alan Yang, who worked as a consultant on South Park before his latest stint as a writer for Parks and Recreations, has just sold his film pitch for Jackpot to 20th Century Fox. Variety describes the film as a teen version of the Kevin Spacey-headlined 21 and centers on a group of friends who win the lottery while they are still in high school. Jackpot will be produced by Michael Aguilar (Semi-Pro, What Happened in Vegas) through his newly formed, Fox-based Dos Tontos production company. The film will probably not garner the same critical recognition as Danny Boyle’s similarly themed Millions but it is always nice to see a writer break through and secure that first movie deal.

    Is this Alan’s first movie deal? He’s already got “White Dad” and “We Love You” in development. “Gay Dude” his spec got a lot of love on last year’s Blacklist as well
