20th Century Fox TV Extends Deal With Fox TV Studios President Deadline

20th Century Fox Television has signed a new long-term contract with Fox TV Studios President David Madden, reports.

Madden took the top role at Fox TV studios in 2010, after serving as executive vice president of creative development and production. He helped shepherd such shows as FX’s “The Shield” and “The Americans,” as well as USA Network’s “Burn Notice.”

“Because of the health of the company on Madden’s watch, FtvS was kept as an independent label after the company was put under the purview of 20th TV Studios CEO and Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman and not merged with 20th TV’s own successful cable arm, Fox21,” the story notes.
