NBC acquires drama spec script “The Ark” written by Daniel Kunka. From Deadline:
The project, a grounded, modern retelling of the Noah’s Ark story from the Bible, was written by Black List scribe Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds). It centers on an engineer who, after the death of his wife, has a vision to construct a ship capable of sustaining life in space. When the build happens to coincide with the coming end of the world, the engineer realizes there may be a larger story at play.
Kunka is repped by ICM Partners and Madhouse Entertainment.
By my count, this is the 45th spec script deal of 2016.
There were 42 spec script deals year-to-date in 2015.
