Sophia Bush has signed a talent holding and development deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
The terms call for her to star in a comedy or drama project for the studio this pilot season and develop additional projects for which she’d serve as an executive producer.
“Now more than ever, vital female voices need to be heard,” the “Chicago P.D.” alum said in a statement. ‘I’m thrilled to begin developing content that inspires and excites me at 20th Century Fox TV.”
Bush just bailed on NBC’s “PD” after four seasons with the Dick Wolf show — but sounds like she’ll stay busy now.
“We’ve been great admirers of Sophia for years and after meeting, we knew we wanted to be in business with her,” Fox Casting executive vice president Sharon Klein added. “She’s smart, she’s passionate, and she brings great ideas and energy to the table. This deal is about developing with her as well as casting her into a comedy or drama this pilot season. She’s a giant TV star and we’re thrilled to have her exclusively at FTG.”
Bush starred on television’s “One Tree Hill” and in the movie “John Tucker Must Die.” She is repped by CAA, Untitled and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
