'Suits' EP Inks Overall Deal at 20th Television
20th Television has locked up Suits executive producer Jon Cowan.
The writer-producer, whose credits include My Generation, Private Practice and Crossing Jordan, has inked a two-year overall deal with 20th Television, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Cowan will have a blind script deal with the studio that will kick off his overall pact, which will begin in May. With the agreement, Cowan will move from Universal Television.
"We had a fantastic experience with him in our last two development cycles, and every network is interested in his work," 20th Television chairman Gary Newman said. "He has a truly unique and remarkable voice and he can write just about any genre, from procedurals to thrillers to character-driven shows. He’s a really talented writer who we think will be a great addition to our roster.”
Cowan is repped by UTA, manager Larry Shuman and attorney Bob Myman.
