Exec producer will develop new projects for both network and cable
“Modern Family” executive producer Danny Zuker has signed a new three-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television.
Under the terms of the agreement, Zuker will continue to exec produce the ABC hit comedy. He will also develop new television projects for network and cable.
Zuker earned producer and executive producer credits on “Grace Under Fire” and “Just Shoot Me!,” respectively. He also worked on “Coupling” and “Watching Ellie.”
“Danny is someone every showrunner and network wants to work with,” said Gary Newman, chairman and chief executive officer, 20th Century Fox TV. “He’s been at Chris and Steve’s side since the first season and plays an incredibly important role.”
Newman continued: “He’s wickedly funny and his scripts are always as relatable as they are hilarious. It goes without saying that ‘Modern Family’ is one of this studio’s most important series, so keeping Danny on this brilliant show as well as allowing him to develop is a tremendous opportunity for us.”
Zuker is represented by CAA and attorney Jeanne Newman.
