Jane the Virgin director Brad Silberling is staying put at CBS TV Studios.
News of his overall deal comes just a day after The CW announced the critically acclaimed dramedy, which he also executive produces, was granted a full season order. Silberling helmed the pilot for CW’s sophomore entry Reign, too, also at CBS TV Studios.
More recently, Silberling directed the half-hour Amazon pilot Down Dog, with Bob Cooper producing. The half-hour entry centers on a surfer (Bad Teacher‘s Josh Casaubon) devoid of ambition and described as a Peter Pan who has been sliding through life on his charisma, charm and good looks. He is forced to take life seriously when he’s left in charge of his ex-girlfriend’s yoga studio.
On the feature side, he directed City of Angels, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events and wrote and directed Moonlight Mile.
At CBS TV Studios, he joins Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman, who inked a new deal there earlier this year. Silbering is repped by UTA, Mosaic and Hansen Jacobsen.
