Drama vet to Touchstone

Corbin's 2-script deal pegged for fall 2004 development

HOLLYWOOD — Drama pro Samantha Corbin (“Crossing Jordan”) has sealed a deal with Touchstone TV to develop a pair of hourlong projects for the studio.

The blind two-script deal, worth in the mid-six figures, is pegged for the fall 2004 development season. Corbin will exec produce any resulting pilot or series.

Corbin, who’s repped by WMA and Patty Felker, most recently exec produced the Universal Network TV pilot “Violent Crime” for CBS this spring.

The scribe was previously set up at Universal, where she developed drama programming and also served as a consulting producer on Dick Wolf’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

Corbin, one of the few high-level African American scribes in dramatic television, served as a co-exec producer on NBC’s “Crossing Jordan.”

Her resume also includes stints as a supervising producer on ABC’s “Gideon’s Crossing” and consulting producer on the Alphabet web’s “The Practice.” She also served as a staff writer, executive story editor and, later, co-producer on the Peacock’s “ER.”

“Violent Crime,” also known as “Partners in Crime” and the “Untitled Samantha Corbin project,” revolved around a female detective duo in Boston.
