‘Titus’ scribes ink Fox pact

Duo to develop p'gramming over the next two years

Scribes Jack Kenny and Brian Hargrove, whose new Fox laffer “Titus” bows tonight, have inked a new multiyear overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television.

Pact calls for the duo to develop new programming for the studio over the next two years and remain as exec producers of the skein.

“Titus” is the first series the two have created. Star Christopher Titus is also a creator of the skein, an acerbic family laffer.

“This studio’s greatest successes have always emerged from its most originals voices, and we think it’s pretty clear from their work with ‘Titus’ that Jack and Brian have the desire, not to mention the ability, to take big risks and challenge conventions, and to do it in a way that’s really smart,” said 20th co-toppers Gary Newman and Dana Walden.

Kenny and Hargrove have been writing together for six years. Before “Titus,” they teamed up during the 1998-99 season to serve as supervising producers on the Lifetime skein “Maggie” and Fox’s “Holding the Baby.”

Pair started writing together in 1994, when they penned multiple segs of the ani series “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and two segs of Nickelodeon’s “The Secret World of Alex Mack.”

During the 1994-95 season, Kenny and Hargrove were tapped as staff writers on the CBS laffer “Dave’s World.” They were bumped to story editors the following season.

Kenny and Hargrove spent two seasons on NBC’s “Caroline in the City,” serving as co-producers from 1996-97 and producers during the 1997-98 season.

Deal was brokered by Ian Greenstein of Broder, Kurland, Webb, Uffner.
