Producer Stan Rogow — who moved from NBC Prods. to Paramount in February 1992 as one of then-chairman Brandon Tartikoff’s first signings — has inked a new two-year exclusive deal with Paramount Network TV.Rogow produced NBCP’s legal drama “Shannon’s Deal” and, more recently, two short-lived CBS hours — critically acclaimed summer tryout “Middle Ages” and the blink-and-you-missed-it actioner “South of Sunset.” Both shows were done in conjunction with producer John Byrum. The estimated seven-figure pact calls for Rogow to develop and produce series and longform programming, with a new law-oriented drama in the works at CBS. “I’m heartened in this day and age that anyone wants to be in the hour business, ” he said. Rogow will also begin production next month on an ABC movie — under the working title “State of Terror”– starring Rosanna Arquette and Scott Bakula. The project, a true story about a woman and her son placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program, will be exec produced by Rogow, with Bobby Roth directing a script by Dan Gordon. Rogow began his Paramount affiliation when he produced the 1991 feature “All I Want for Christmas” before signing an overall first-look movie, exclusive TV deal. Additional credits include producing the adaptation of “Clan of the Cave Bear” and the NBC pilot for the series “Fame.”
