“Mixed-ish” co-creator Peter Saji has a new overall deal with the newly renamed ABC Signature, the television studio announced Thursday.

The multi-year agreement keeps Saji at the studio where he first launched his career back in 2007 via the Disney/ABC Writers program.

“Peter has written some of the most evocative and important episodes of ‘black-ish,’ and hit a real home run for us with ‘mixed-ish,’” ABC Signature president Jonnie Davis said in a statement. “Keeping him at ABC Signature, where he started his career, was a huge priority for us and for me personally. He’s a spectacular talent and I’m so happy he’s staying in the family.”

Saji, who was a writer on the Kenya Barris-created “Black-ish” for five seasons before going on to co-create the spinoff series last year, signed his first overall deal at ABC Studios in 2017. Saji was the writer behind several of “Black-ish’s” most acclaimed episodes, including “Juneteenth,” “Purple Rain” and the recently released “Please, Baby, Please.”

He is repped by Matt Rice at UTA, Ben Jacobson at The Framework Collective and Dan Fox at Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman.
