Phillip Noyce Inks First Look Deal at ABC
Phillip Noyce is staying in business with ABC.
The Revenge director has inked a first look development deal with the Disney-owned network and its sister studio. Through the arrangement, ABC will get the first shot at Noyce's development projects, which he will also executive produce.
The director-producer, whose recent television credits include FX's Lights Out, HBO's Luck and Showtime's Brotherhood, is also locked in to direct an ABC pilot for the 2011-12 season.
Noyce, who has spent much of his career focused on the big screen with films including Salt, The Bone Collector and Clear and Present Danger, is repped by UTA.
