Trekkie Behr inks Par pact

“Star Trek” series writer/producer Ira Steven Behr has signed a three-year overall development deal with Paramount Network Television.

Behr, an executive producer on Par’s syndie “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” will focus on drama series and longform projects under the multimillion-dollar pact. Behr has worked as a writer/producer on the studio’s “Star Trek” TV franchise since 1989.

A true Trekkie, Behr also has authored two books — “The Rules of Acquisition” and “Legends of the Ferengi” — about the mischievous Ferengi, one of the most popular alien races featured in the 1980s and ’90s spinoffs of the original “Star Trek” series.

Behr began his journey to the final frontier as a writer/producer for “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” In 1993, he was named supervising producer of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” advancing to executive producer in 1994.

Before signing on with Paramount, Behr worked as a writer/producer on such series as ABC’s “Once a Hero,” NBC’s “Bronx Zoo” and the syndicated drama “Fame.” He began his career as a TV writer in 1982 on the NBC series “Bret Maverick.”

Behr’s deal was brokered by the William Morris Agency’s Gary M. Loder and Todd Harris.
