Writer-producer Tim Minear has inked a new two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television. Under the seven-figure pact, which has an option for a third year, Minear will work on existing series and develop new drama projects for the studio. Minear’s priority is "Drive," a one-hour pilot for 20th TV and Fox, which he co-created and is executive producing.

The project, about an underground road race across America, recently wrapped production. If it is picked up to series, Minear will stay with the show as executive producer/showrunner. "He has done such an incredible work for us," 20th TV president Dana Walden said. "He is always interested in stretching beyond the comfort zone, whether it’s going deeply dramatic or writing with great levity. He is very versatile, a great team player and a skilled showrunner who is always willing to help."
