Sarah Silverman Inks Script Deal With Imagine Television (Exclusive)

Sarah Silverman could be heading back to television.
The actress-comedienne is penning a new project with The Sarah Silverman Program writer/producer Jon Schroeder and showrunner Dan Sterling. If it is ordered to pilot, Silverman will star and Sterling will serve as showrunner.
The project is part of a script deal Silverman has struck with Imagine Television, which has an exclusive pact with 20th Century Fox Television. At present, there is no network attached to the project.
Silverman's last regular series turn was on her eponymous Comedy Central series, which she created with Dan Harmon (Community) and Rob Schrab (Children's Hospital). She played a fictionalized version of herself, an unemployed, immature and irresponsible woman. The comedy, which THR’s Tim Goodman (then writing for The San Francisco Chronicle) called “an offbeat gem,” ended in 2010 after three seasons.
She has also appeared in such films as School of Rock and School for Scoundrels. Next, she will co-star opposite Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams in director Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz. Silverman won an Emmy in 2008 for her comedic short "I'm F---ing Matt Damon."
Silverman is repped by CAA, Thruline Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham. Schroeder (Bob's Burgers) and Sterling (King of the Hill, South Park) are both repped by UTA.
