Fox 21 has signed the Emmy-nominated writer and producer Craig Wright to an overall deal, under which he will create cable projects and supervise other writers, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
Wright earned an Emmy nomination for his work on HBO’s "Six Feet Under." The one-year pod deal has Wright joining Stephen Gaghan of "Syriana" and Chip Johannessen of "Dexter" at the studio, the story notes.
"We see ourselves as a writers’ studio," said Fox 21 President Bert Salke. "We’re really writer-driven in a world where there are fewer and fewer cable projects being made at a given network."
