‘Parks and Rec’ and ‘House of Lies’ Actor Sells Pitch to Universal

Ben Schwartz, who appears on NBC’s sitcom Parks and Recreation and Showtime’sHouse of Lies, sold No Hearts Club, a romantic comedy pitch, to Universal for Imagine to produce, reports THR.

This is the second pitch Schwartz has sold to Universal/Imagine; two years ago he sold the project Would You Rather to the studio.  Ex-porn star Sasha Grey stars in that film. Schwartz is also attached to star in Colllege Humor’s Coffee Town, a spec that sold earlier this year and will be the humor website’s first foray into features.  And his script El Fuego Caliente made the 2011 Black List.  So you might say he’s a little busy.

The logline for No Hearts Club is under wraps, but it’s said to be a romcom from the man’s perspective. Is it the next 500 Days of Summer?  That remains to be seen. What are some of your favorite male-centric romcoms?  Is that a genre you want to see more of?
