In one of the first pieces of development for MTV‘s new regime, the network has tapped young writer Ben Epstein (10 Things I Hate About You) to pen an hourlong project. The show is set at a theme park, with further details still being fleshed out. This marks the second project at MTV for Epstein, who developed a college murder mystery last year. On the feature side, Epstein, repped by CAA and Think Tank Management, is currently writing the teen thriller You Get Me for CBS Films and is attached to direct his drama script Who Are You People with Seann William Scott set to star later this year.
