According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has entered into talks with comedy writers Alec Berg and David Mandel (‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ ‘Eurotrip’) to develop ‘Dog Tease,’ a comedy based on the YouTube hit ‘Ultimate Dog Tease.’
Created by Andrew Grantham, ‘Ultimate Dog Tease’ features a talking dog that is teased relentlessly by an off-camera voice bragging about eating meat and giving bacon to the cat. Grantham provided the voiceovers for the video, taped by the owners of the dog. The video has received more than 93 million views since last year.
Hollywood insiders say that Paramount will develop the project under its Insurge Pictures label, which created the low-budget hit ‘The Devil Inside.’
