'Seinfield' writer inks multi-million-dollar pact

“Seinfeld” supervising producer Spike Feresten will remain with Castle Rock after the hit NBC sitcom ends its run in May.

Feresten has inked a two-year overall deal with Castle Rock worth several million dollars a year, sources say. He’ll develop, create and produce new series for the production company responsible for “Seinfeld.”

Feresten has worked on “Seinfeld” for the past three years, and he’s penned such notable episodes as “Soup Nazi” and “Muffin Tops.” Prior to working on the show about nothing, he spent five years on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”

Feresten, the latest in a string of “Seinfeld” writers to ink multimillion-dollar development deals in recent months, has received several Emmy nominations over the course of his career.

He’s repped by his attorney Ken Richman.
