“Norm” exec producer and show runner Rob Ulin has inked a three-year overall deal with Warner Bros. Television.
Pact calls for Ulin to remain exec producer of the Norm Macdonald starrer while also creating, developing and producing new projects for the studio. The ABC laffer begins its third season this fall.
Ulin has been with “Norm” since its premiere. Before that he was an exec producer on NBC’s “Veronica’s Closet” and the web’s short-lived Brit import “Stressed Eric.”
From 1992-95, Ulin was a writer and ultimately exec producer of ABC’s “Roseanne,” working with “Norm” creator Bruce Helford. Ulin, who’s won a Peabody and Golden Globe Award, was showrunner on “Roseanne” for 51 segs.
Ulin began his Hollywood career in 1984, writing and rewriting movie scripts before ultimately moving into television. His first major gig was as a producer on ABC’s “Dinosaurs,” starting in 1991.
Deal was brokered by CAA.
