Runaway Bride

A New York multimedia company confirms that it's acquired all media rights to the "life stories" of Jennifer Wilbanks and the fiance she fled.

The company, which is pitching a TV movie, isn't saying whether any money has changed hands.

The president of ReganMedia calls the case an "unexpected and compelling story of love and forgiveness."

Wilbanks vanished from her Georgia home on April 26, leading to extensive searches. She took a bus to the Southwest, and concocted an abduction story, which she later recanted.

The prosecutor who handled the case against Wilbanks says he's "really sort of disgusted by the whole thing."

Wilbanks pleaded no contest this month to charges in the case and received two years of probation, 120 hours of community service and a fine.
