Comedy producers re-up at Sony TV

Cathy Yuspa, Josh Goldsmith ink new two-year deal

Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith, creators of " 'Til Death," have inked a new two-year overall deal with Sony Pictures TV.

Under the seven-figure pact, the duo will develop series projects for the studio they have called home since 1997.

Yuspa and Goldsmith boast a perfect pilot-¬pickup record, with all four of their pilot scripts so far ordered to pilot: CBS' "Stroller Wars" (2005), Fox's " 'Til Death" (2006), ABC's "Big Day" (2006) and CBS' "The Fish Tank" this past development season.

Two of them, "Death" and "Day," were picked up to series, with "Death" heading into its fourth season. Yuspa and Goldsmith no longer are involved day-to-day on the Fox show starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher -- it is run by comedy veteran Don Reo -- but they continue as executive producers.

Before segueing into development, Yuspa and Goldsmith spent six years on the Sony TV-produced comedy "The King of Queens," which they joined after the pilot in 1998 as executive story editors, fresh out of graduating from USC's School of Cinema-Television.

The husband-and-wife duo rose to executive producers/ showrunners on the hit CBS series, which they steered for three seasons, from 2001-04.

Yuspa and Goldsmith, whose feature credits include "13 Going on 30" and "What Women Want," are repped by ICM and attorney Ken Richman.
