Fox has been very high on Wines, who got the network’s attention with his viral video Upstairs. Wines landed his first sale out of graduate school at Fox in 2012, a comedy series adaptation of Upstairs. The following year, Fox bought another half-hour script from Wines titled Five; both projects were produced by Aaron Kaplan.

Wines recently was brought on board by Montecito Picture Company to adapt Ivan Reitman’s original feature idea Summer Of Love.

Particular Pictures, Hamburg and Wines are repped by WME. Wines is also repped by the Radmin Company and Morris Yorn.
