"New Year's Eve" scribe Katherine Fugate has come on to write Paramount/Nickelodeon's comedy "How Could You Do This to Me?"

Paramount confirmed Fugate's attachment Friday.

"How Could You Do This to Me?" was first set at Paramount and Nick in 2009 as a potential star vehicle for Miranda Cosgrove, who stars on the Nickelodeon series "iCarly" and "Drake and Josh." Andy Marx and Andrea King wrote several drafts of the script with Gil Netter ("The Blind Side," "Marley and Me") producing and Dan Halsted exec producing.

"How Could You Do This to Me?" centers on a teen who believes the divorce of her parents has improved her life. When mom and dad appear to be rekindling sparks, their daughter feels threatened and tries to break them up.

Fugate created the TV series "Army Wives" and her feature credits include "Valentine's Day" and "The Prince and Me." She's repped by Gersh.
