OddLot Entertainment has acquired rights to Septillion To One, a romantic comedy spec script by Adam R. Perlman and Graham Sack. It will be fast-tracked and financed by OddLot. The logline: an over-zealous former FBI agent who has been relegated to the fraud unit of the Texas State Lottery begins investigating a beautiful and shrewd woman who had inexplicably defied all odds and hit the lottery jackpot three times. He realizes the odds are over one in a billion for this to happen, creating a game of cat and mouse with the suspect whom he ultimately falls head over heels in love.
“Linda and Tom brought us this contemporary romantic comedy that kept us riveted and entertained until the end,” said OddLot’s Gigi Pritzker. “This is a smart script, based on a true story out of Texas, has commercial viability with a slew of A-list talent and directors already interested.”
OddLot’s Michael Nathanson and Rachel Shane will oversee the project. Tom McNulty and Linda McDonough brought it in and will produce. Co-president Bill Lischak brokered the deal for OddLot. Gersh reps the writers.
