In Good Company
Full Show Summary
"In Good Company" The TV series, which Paul Weitz will co-write with Josh Bycel and Jon Fener (Happy Endings), will stay close to the plot of the movie. It will center on a middle-aged ad exec who contends with his new boss who’s half his age, and who also begins dating his daughter.The movie — which Paul Weitz wrote, directed and produced — starred Dennis Quaid as Dan, a 51-year-old happily married ad executive who is demoted following an acquisition of his magazine and gets 26-year-old business school prodigy Carter (Topher Grace) as his new boss. Carter soon starts seeing Dan’s daughter, played by Scarlett Johansson. The film was considered a satire of corporate culture and took shots at merger mania, mass layoffs, aggressive marketing tie-in practices and ageism, all issues that are still relevant 10 years later.
