EXCLUSIVE: CBS Films has paid mid-six figures for Senior Year, the spec comedy by Andrew Knauer and Arthur Pielli. Broken Road and Benderspink are producing. Benderspink, Gersh and Jeff Frankel rep the writers. It’s an R-rated, female-driven comedy that went out Sunday afternoon. CBS Films’ Mark Ross will oversee. Jeremy Stein and Todd Garner are producing with JC Spink and Jake Wagner. After a cheerleader falls off a pyramid and knocks herself into a coma, she awakens 20 years later (present day) in the body of a 37-year-old woman. But having only aged physically and knowing nothing else, she returns to reclaim her seat at the cool table and win the prom queen crown that has eluded her. Gersh’s Greg Pedicin brokered the deal.
