'Bones' Producer Barry Josephson Inks Overall Deal at Sony
Barry Josephson is laying down roots at Sony.
The prolific producer has inked a new overall deal at Sony Pictures Television, where he’ll be exclusive for television. As part of the pact, he will also have a first-look deal for features.
The news comes just days after his long-running Fox series, Bones, was renewed for a tenth season. Josephson's other small screen projects include AMC's upcoming Turn, which centers on a farmer who bands together with a group of children friends to form an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America's fight for independence.
On the film side, the former Columbia Pictures exec is producing a growing collection of films, including a Sony-based Canadian maple syrup heist comedy starring Jason Segal. Past credits include Life as We Knot It, Wild Wild West and animated hit Enchanted.
Josephson's eponymous production company inked a first-look deal with FremantleMedia Enterprises, part of the latter’s efforts to beef up its scripted portfolio, back in 2012. Prior to that, the WME-repped producer had a deal at 20th TV.
