Ivan Reitman takes a seat next to The Kid's Table

08.18.2010

Sorry this isn't GHOSTBUSTERS news.

It's not even news of Ivan Reitman directing. He's actually just signed on to produce an adaptation of the novel, "The Kid Table" by Andrea Seigel.

The novel is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl trying to find where she fits in with her crazy family. Here's a summary of the yet to be released novel:

"Ingrid Bell and her five teenage cousins are in exactly this situation. Never mind the fact that high school is almost over. They're still eating mac and cheese with a toddler. But what happens when the rules change? When Brianne, the oldest cousin, lands a seat at the Adult Table, the others are in shock. What does it take to graduate from the Kid Table?"

"Over the course of five family events, Ingrid and her cousins attempt to finish childhood and send the infamous table into retirement. But as Ingrid turns on the charm in order to manipulate her situation, the family starts questioning her motives. And when her first love comes in the form of first betrayal (he's Brianne's boyfriend), Ingrid is forced to consider how she fits into this family and what it means to grow up."

The bit that might interest you is the writer penning the script is Justin Adler. Adler has written for several shows including BETTER OFF TED and FUTURAMA. Yes, FUTURAMA. He wrote on one of my personal favorite episodes, "Mars University".

"Better off Ted" was way underrated.

I don't know about this or not, but I thought "BOT" that had some truly funny episodes. I don't know why people never really got into it, because it's funny. Especially the 2 lab guys, they made the show absolutely hilarious. Please at least try the show, because it really didn't get a fair shake.

Oh, Mr. Reitman I want to believe there's still good in you as a director, the same way Luke wanted to believe there was still good in Vader in ROTJ. But after Evolution and My Super Ex-Girlfriend...geez
