Comedy showrunner Greg Malins has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. As part of the deal, Malins will focus on development for the studio rather than board an existing series. Previously, he inked a deal with Warner Bros. TV, where he served as a producer on “Friends.” Most recently, he was a consulting producer and the CBS series “2 Broke Girls” and also developed a pilot for CBS opposite Greg Berlanti that missed the cut for this season.
Zack Estrin (Prison Break) has extended his overall deal with ABC Studios, and as part of the deal, he will re-team with Paul Scheuring on his new series ZERO HOUR. Esterin is set to executive produce the series and serve as its showrunner. He previously served as a co-executive producer on “No Ordinary Family” and executive producer on “The River”, both for ABC Studios.
