WBTV, Junge pact 2-year prod’n deal

Warner Bros. TV has inked an exclusive two-year production and development deal with “Friends” writer-producer Alexa Junge that’s worth close to $1 million a year.

As part of the deal, Junge, who has worked as a producer on “Friends” since its launch, will now serve as a consultant on NBC’s new Thursday hit comedy “Veronica’s Closet.”

She’ll no longer write for “Friends,” but she’ll be creating, developing and producing new series for Bright/Kauffman/Crane Prods. under the Warner Bros. TV banner.

Before “Friends,” Junge wrote episodes of several series, including “Ghostwriter,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “The Second Half” and “Someone Like Me.”

She’s also an award-winning playwright, and has penned plays and musicals for the Goodspeed Opera House, the Studio Arena Theatre, Playwrights Horizons, Theatreworks and the Depot Theatre.

The deal was made by Tony Jonas, president of Warner Bros. TV, and her agent, Ann Blanchard of the William Morris Agency.
