EXCLUSIVE: In competitive bidding, Colin Quinn has signed with Grand Central Publishing’s Ben Greenberg for Yesterday’s News. Quinn’s first book went for mid-six figures and is a humorous look at humanity and pop culture, in which the former Weekend Update anchor will imagine what daily newspapers from each era of civilization would be filled with, from headlines and op-eds to obits and classifieds. For Quinn, this follows his one-man show Colin Quinn Long Story Short, which Jerry Seinfeld directed for its Broadway run and an Emmy-nominated HBO special. Quinn will bring that performance to Canada this weekend, where he’ll headline the Montreal Comedy Festival. Quinn, whose deal was made by Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Brian Stern and attorney Jonathan Ehrlich, recently wrapped I Hate You Dad, opposite Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg.
