Rogers inks pact with WB TV

Rick Rogers has taken his Rogers Entertainment to Warner Bros. TV under a first-look producing deal that will seek to develop and produce programming featuring the manager’s roster of stand-up comedy clients.

The non-exclusive pact includes an already-in-development CBS sitcom for Rogers client Bobcat Goldthwait and Tim Kazurinsky that would be produced with Harvey Shephard and Fran McConnell — former WB execs who recently entered into an independent production arrangement with the studio.

The same parties are involved in developing another sitcom vehicle for Bill Engvall, a regular on last season’s ABC series “Delta.”

Separate from the Warner Bros. deal, Rogers client Mark Roberts has inked with Castle Rock Entertainment to develop a comedy series he would write and star in, while comic Henry Cho has a development agreement with Nelvana Entertainment — marking the company’s maiden voyage into the primetime comedy business.
