Jones, Owen pact for TV

Skein probably to be shoppd to b'cast, cable nets

Quincy Jones Entertainment and Telepictures Prods. have signed stand-up comedian Gary Owen to develop and star in an untitled scripted TV show.

Although the project is in the pipeline at Warner Bros.-based Telepictures, which largely produces firstrun syndie shows, skein will probably be shopped to broadcast and cable nets. Jones’ Telepictures deal is part of a wide-reaching agreement he has with Warner Bros.

A year ago, Jones and Telepictures optioned the TV rights to “The White Guy,” a one-man show about a mixed-race couple. It is not clear whether “The White Guy” and the Owen deal are related.

Jones is repped by the William Morris Agency, Owen by Creative Artists Agency. Owen is managed by Corey Concoff.
