“Django Unchained” producer Stacey Sher has locked in a two-year deal with FX.

Sher and her production company Shiny Penny have entered a first-look production deal with the cable network, FX Networks and FX Productions presidents of original programming Nick Grad and Eric Schrier said Thursday.

The two-year pact covers all projects developed for FX Networks.

“Stacey is a fearless storyteller whose remarkable run of feature films show a willingness to approach challenging topics with unflinching honesty and considerable artistry,” Grad said. “We look forward to working with Stacey and her team to build on this success and develop exceptional television for the FX Networks.”

Sher, whose credits also include “Erin Brokovich” and “Pulp Fiction,” is currently producing “The Hateful Eight,” which marks her third collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, as well as “Untitled John Wells Project.” Both films are slated for fall releases by The Weinstein Company.

On the television side, Sher, who was executive producer on Comedy Central’s “Reno 911,” is also producing AMC’s upcoming martial-arts drama “Badlands.”

Shiny Penny also includes executive vice president and “Hateful Eight” associate producer Coco Francini. Emily Levitan has also joined the production company as creative executive.
