Bryan Fuller, co-creator and executive producer of Fox’s critically praised though canceled series Wonderfalls, has signed a two-year overall deal with series co-producer 20th Century Fox TV, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The pact, said to be in the seven-figure range and to include an option for a third year, calls for Fuller to focus primarily on developing new shows for the studio while also possibly working on an existing 20th TV series, the trade paper reported.
"Bryan has an incredibly fresh and unique voice for television," 20th TV president Dana Walden told the trade paper. "He is one of the people we’ve identified over the past couple of years who sort of defines what this studio is trying to do in terms of distinctive and groundbreaking television."
The deal comes on the heels of the Fox network’s quick cancellation of 20th TV/Regency TV’s quirky fantasy show Wonderfalls, which launched to good reviews but was pulled off the air after four low-rated airings, the trade paper reported.
