The married Hollywood power couple who co-founded Amblin Entertainment with Steven Spielberg have signed a major deal with CBS, reports Deadlne.com.
According to the story, the couple–Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall — "are making a foray into television with a two-year overall deal at CBS Television Studios, which also includes a pilot commitment from sister network CBS. This marks the first overall TV deal for the duo’s Kennedy/Marshall Company, whose only previous TV pact was a first-look agreement at CBS in the 1990s."
Robert Zotnowski , who is a former CBS executive, will be in charge of TV development for Kennedy/Marshall, the story notes.
The article adds. "In addition to their roster of features, which have earned them five best picture Oscar nominations as a team, Kennedy and Marshall have produced several TV projects. Those include the HBO movie ‘A Special Relationship’ and two other projects currently in development at the pay cable network: ‘WikiLeaks’ with Charles Ferguson and Rowan Joffe and ‘Legacy Of Ashes’ with David Simon and Ed Burns.
