Scooter Braun Teams With ‘Hidden Figures’ Writer on Scripted E! TV Series

According to Scooter Braun’s entertainment and media company SB Productions, the manager is executive producing Inspiration, a script written by Allison Schroeder — who co-wrote the screenplay for current box office smash Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer — which centers on a character named Elise Moreno, who inherits money from her estranged rock star father and is on a quest to make it as a musician. The script was purchased by E! with Universal Cable Productions named as the studio.

SB Projects has also produced Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which is the top-grossing concert film in U.S. history, according to the company. Braun and Manson also executive produced CBS’ Scorpion, now in its third season. Other SB Projects include a music-based animation series called Rock Angels with Cyber Group Studios, the MTV series Todrick and feature film Jem and the Holograms.

Schroeder wrote Hidden Figures for Fox 2000, which Pharrell Williams co-produced along with Chernin Entertainment and Levantine Films. The Writers Guild of America nominated the film for best adapted screenplay and the National Board of Review nominated it as one of the 10 top films of 2016.
