Emmy Winner From '30 Rock' Signs With Universal THR

A TV writer and producer who won two Emmy Awards for his work on NBC's "30 Rock" has signed a new two-year overall deal with Universal Television. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Universal's pact with Matt Hubbard will have him developing and supervising new projects for the studio.

Hubbard will also executive produce Fox’s Universal Television comedy “Cabot College,” which is from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock of “30 Rock,” the story notes. The comedy is about a women’s college that accepts men for the first time.

“Matt is a funny, smart writer with the ability to write hard jokes and great story,” Universal Television Executive Vice President Bela Bajaria said.

Hubbard is currently working as a consulting producer on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation."

Along with a string of Emmy nominations during his seven seasons on "30 Rock," Hubbard won two Primetime Emmys in 2009, sharing in the show's trophy for outstanding comedy series and winning outstanding writing for a comedy series for the episode "Reunion."
