I'm not sure about a ready-made script, but it shouldn't be too
difficult to write one that uses whodepends(1) from the devscripts

Example output:

% whodepends xserver-xorg
Dependent maintainers for xserver-xorg:
Petter Reinholdtsen <pere@debian.org> (ldm)
Mattia Dongili <malattia@debian.org> (xfree86-driver-synaptics)
Debian X Strike Force <debian-x@lists.debian.org> (xdmx xserver-common xserver-xorg-dbg x-window-system-core)
