Castle Rock Entertainment has inked a three-year overall deal with “Seinfeld” writer-producers Andy Robin and Gregg Kavet. Sources say the deal is worth a combined $7 million to $9 million over the course of the three years.
Robin and Kavet have worked as writers on “Seinfeld” for the past three years, most recently as supervising producers. The duo have now been upped to co-executive producers for the coming season, and beyond that, they will develop new series for Castle Rock.
Prior to “Seinfeld,” Robin worked as a writer on “Saturday Night Live,” and he is currently writing the film “Big Baby” for Judd Apatow and New Line Cinema. Robin and Kavet are both former writers for the Harvard Lampoon.
The deal was cut by Sue Naegle of UTA and attorney Ken Richman of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller and Hoberman. Negotiating for Castle Rock were Glenn Padnick, president, and Jess Wittenberg, exec VP of business and legal affairs.
