Emily Kapnek Signs Overall Deal With ABC Studios

“Selfie,” “Splitting up Together” creator was previously at Warner Bros.


“Splitting Up Together” creator Emily Kapnek has moved from Warner Bros. to ABC Studios, where she has signed a new overall deal.

Under the three-year deal, Kapnek will create and oversee new projects from her production company Piece of Pie for ABC Studios. ABC is the current home to “Splitting Up Together”, and previously aired Kapnek shows “Selfie” and “Suburgatory.”

“Splitting Up Together,” which first premiered last season, hails from Kapnek’s Piece of Pie Productions, Ellen DeGeneres’s A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. Television.

The series stars Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson as a couple whose marriage is reignited by their divorce. They still live in the same house, alternating weeks, with one living upstairs and doing the parenting while the other lives downstairs in the guest apartment.

Bobby Lee, Diane Farr, Lindsay Price, Olivia Keville, Van Crosby and Sander Thomas also star. ABC announced back in November that it had expanded the episode order for the show’s currently-airing second season.

Variety first reported the news.
