D’Works takes ‘Spin’ to Hertz

Producer inks 2-year deal

NEW YORK — “Spin City” supervising producer Tom Hertz will become co-executive producer of the DreamWorks Television skein as part of a new two-year development deal with the studio worth nearly $3 million.

Hertz, who joined “Spin” during its second season, will develop comedy projects for DreamWorks while remaining an exec on the ABC laffer. As part of a deal brokered by UTA and manager Cary Hoffman, he’ll be upped to co-exec producer on the series sometime midway through the 1999-2000 season.

After a stint as a stand-up comic, Hertz was a writer for HBO’s “Dennis Miller Live,” winning an Emmy in 1987 for his contributions to the show. Hertz also wrote for HBO’s “The Larry Sanders Show.”
