    Fischer is especially proud of the deals he struck this year for Modern Family co-showrunner Steve Levitan, whose hit comedy will air on USA Network in a rich syndication pact. "It is great to have a show that is not only critically acclaimed but also rewards your clients financially," Fischer notes. "It doesn't always go hand in hand." He's also shepherding Julia Louis-Dreyfus' return to television on HBO's Veep and superproducer Peter Chernin's film and TV deals with Fox that include hot television projects Terra Nova and Kiefer Sutherland's Touch and the August film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Fischer also handled Ben Affleck's deals to direct and star in Warner Bros.' Argo and Matt Damon's pacts for Media Rights Capital's Elysium and Fox's We Bought a Zoo.
