EXCLUSIVE: Relativity has acquired Jump, a spec script by John Scott Shepherd that Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein will produce through their Vendetta Entertainment. It is a romantic dramedy in the vein of Jerry Maguire, with a strong male role at the center. Shepherd recently created and executive produces NBC’s midseason comedy series Save Me, and he also created the ABC summer series The Days. Shepherd’s feature credits include Life Or Something Like It and Joe Somebody for Fox; his books include Henry’s List Of Wrongs, which originally sold to New Line in a seven-figure deal. Relativity will go right out to directors and actors. This is the first feature sale for Shepherd since he returned to Paradigm.
