Pepper Dennis creators join Wedding party

Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have been tapped as executive producers-show runners on Fox's midseason series The Wedding Album. The two will rewrite the pilot, which will be recast and reshot. The original pilot, about a wedding photographer and his assistant, was written and executive-produced by Andy Tenant and Wink Mordaunt and produced by Fox TV Studios.

20th Century Fox TV, where Berg and Harberts are under an overall deal, came on board to coproduce the project when it was picked up as a series last month. It in unclear if Tenant and Mordaunt, who first developed the project for Fox in 2001, will have any future involvement with the show.

Berg and Harberts first heard of Wedding Album in mid May when the studio approached them about the possibility of taking over the show. "We thought it was wonderfully directed, looked great, and we thought there was definitely a series there," out writer-producer Harberts said of the duo's reaction to the pilot.

While the characters will undergo tweaking, the premise of the show will stay the same. "We'll be tweaking things, amping up the romantic comedy element, and building on the concept that Andy and Wink put forward in the original pilot," Harberts said. Berg and Harberts recently signed a new three-year deal with 20th TV.

Under their previous overall pact with the studio, they created and executive-produced the WB network's midseason dramedy Pepper Dennis and the Fox pilot One Big Happy. The duo has also worked on such 20th TV drama series as John Doe, Wonderfalls, and North Shore; their writing credits also include the 1999 feature Valentine. (Nellie Andreeva, Reuters)
