Jeff Bushell has sold his script to Lionsgate for “Bad Dog” with Eugenio Derbez and Ben Odell’s 3Pas Studios producing with Point Grey.
The story is centered on a Satan’s favorite hound, Bub, being booted out of hell by a jealous rival and mistakenly adopted by a single dad and his two kids. Despite his bad ways, Bub soon begins to embrace his goodness and falls in love with the family. When Satan wants his dog back and Bub refuses, he must protect his new family from the fury of hell.
Bushell’s credits include “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and “Ricky Stanicky.” He is repped by Paradigm, Russell Hollander and Jeff Frankel and Allan Vainshtein at McKuin,
