Esquire Boys Hit It Big With TV Sale

katzbook.jpgEsquire contributing editor David Katz and editor-at-large A.J. Jacobs have hit it big in Hollywood (well, a little bit) with “Things a Man Should Never Do Past 30,” the Hollywood Reporter said.

The writing pair based their project on Katz’s humor book citing 500 things that Katz thinks should not be done by over-30-somethings.

The stroke of luck hit Katz/Jacobs when director/producer Barry Sonnenfeld read the book and thought he could do something with it.

What, we’re not exactly sure.

Maybe it’ll be “Get Shorty” for the 30-plus crowd.

“The show is about a guy working at men’s magazine who is reluctant to embrace adulthood and his friend who is an immersion journalist,” said Katz, who is penning “Things” with Jacobs, an immersion journalist.

Although set at a men’s magazine, Katz assured that “Things” will not be a workplace comedy.
