'Amazing Spider-Man' Director Marc Webb Signs Overall Deal With CBS Television Studios
Marc Webb is swinging to CBS.
The Amazing Spider-Man director has signed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios, it was announced Tuesday.
Under the pact, Webb will develop new projects for network and cable, and will direct projects for the studio. He also will serve as executive producer on CBS's Limitless adaptation and The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, for which he helmed both pilot episodes.
In addition to directing both Amazing Spider-Man films — plans for a third film were scrapped in February — Webb is known for 500 Days of Summer. His TV credits include directing stints on The Office and Lone Star as well as exec producing Hulu's first original series, Battleground.
Webb is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content and Lichter Grossman.
