Sony Pictures Television has signed a three-year overall deal with "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan, reports Deadline.com.

The deal will begin June 1, when his current contract with 20th Century Fox TV expires, the article notes. Ryan is finishing two consecutive three-year deals with 20th TV, and while the studio made him an offer for another contract, Sony TV provided the more lucrative offer, the story says.

Sony TV is seeking to move away from signing non-writing executive producers and to bring in experienced showrunners, the piece adds.
