Gina G. Goff and Richard Dreyfuss are producing the original comedy drama television series Palm Springs, created and written by Mike B. Metz. Mike is a television writer in Los Angeles whose writing talent has been represented on hit series shows Californication and The O.C. He recently sold a cable comedy pitch to Warner Horizon based on the lives of Million Dollar Listing’s James Harris and David Parnes. Earlier this year he wrote the pilot Urban Farmers for Comedy Central. Previously he sold projects to Universal TV, Nickelodeon, Sony TV, among others. Mike is represented by The Gersh Agency and Bloom Hergott.
Based on Mike’s experiences living with his recently-widowed grandfather, Palm Springs follows newly-minted bachelors, coming of (their vastly different) age. It’s a comedically honest look at what it’s like for a grandson and grandfather who don’t know each other, lamenting their pasts, living under the same roof. A buddy comedy - with a forty year age gap!
Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss is producing and attached to play the co-starring role of the grandfather “Poppy." Richard has acted in some of the most significant movies and television in cinematic history including American Graffiti, The Graduate, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, The Goodbye Girl, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Down and Out In Beverly Hills, Madoff, Tin Man, Nuts, Postcards from the Edge, Always, Poseidon, W, and many more.
Log Line: A late twenty-something in the midst of a career and relationship crisis takes the only offer afforded him: move in with his recently widowed, estranged grandfather in Palm Springs.
