'The Carmichael Show' Showrunner Renews Overall Deal at 20th TV
The Carmichael Show showrunner Danielle Sanchez-Witzel is staying put at 20th Century Fox Television.
Sanchez-Witzel has renewed her overall deal with the studio behind NBC's late and great Carmichael Show, which was canceled last year after a three-season run.
In her time with the studio, Sanchez-Witzel has also worked on New Girl and currently serves as a consultant on Fox rookie comedy L.A. to Vegas.
"Danielle is a superstar; she’s hilarious, brilliant, creative and can run a show like nobody’s business," said 20th TV president of creative affairs Jonnie Davis, who works with president of business operations Howard Kurtzman to head the studio. "Her collaboration with Jerrod on Carmichael was spectacular, but just the beginning for her, and locking her in to an exclusive deal here was a big priority for Howard and me. She’s a huge talent."
Sanchez-Witzel's deal comes after Carmichael also inked an overall deal with 20th TV. Under the pact, Carmichael has multicam comedy pilot Rel set up at Fox in which he reunites with Lil Rel Howery for the semi-autobiographical entry.
Sanchez-Witzel is repped by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman.
