Liz Friedman has signed a brand new, multi-year overall deal at Sony Pictures Television, the studio announced Monday.
Under the fresh pact, Friedman will develop original series for broadcast, cable, and streaming services and reunite with “House” creator David Shore to act as an executive producer on Season 2 of his hit ABC medical drama, “The Good Doctor.”
“I’m thrilled to be in working with Sony, especially since it means climbing back into trenches with David Shore on ‘The Good Doctor,'” said Friedman. “Great show, great showrunner, great opportunity to once again use sarcoidosis in conversation.”
Along with her time spent writing and producing for Shore’s now extent Fox series, the Emmy Award-nominated Friedman’s other small screen credits include co-creating ABC’s short-lived drama “Conviction” and co-writing the pilot for “Orange Is The New Black,” along with Jenji Kohan.
Friedman was also an executive producer on the first season of the Krysten Ritter-led “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” and a writer and producer on CBS’ Sherlock Holmes-drama”Elementary” and the ’90s sci-fi, adventure series “Xena: Warrior Princess”
She is repped by CAA and attorney Jeanne Newman.
Season 2 of “The Good Doctor” will premiere this fall on ABC.
