Valderrama in Overall Deal With Relativity

Actor will develop series for broadcast, cable.

Wilmer Valderrama has signed an overall deal with RelativityREAL, the reality and alternative television unit of Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media.

The deal calls for Valderrama to create, develop and executive-produce new series for broadcast and cable networks.


“Wilmer’s career is a testament to his ability to push boundaries both in front of the camera and behind it," said Forman. "It’s a perfect fit."


Deal is the second overall pact for RelativityREAL; the first was with executive producers Jay Blumenfield and Anthony Marsh. 


In addition to a blind script commitment to produce a new show for the Disney Channel, Valderrama voices the title role in the Playhouse Disney animated series, "Handy Manny." 


Recently, he executive produced and starred in a one-hour comedy for Fox entitled, "The Emancipation of Ernesto." Valderrama’s production company, WV Enterprises, also recently sold Nickelodeon a half-hour comedy entitled "Earth to Pablo."


He is also working with MTV to develop a half- hour novella, "Brooklyn Sound."
