A correction was made to this article on Oct. 13, 2003.

HBO is closing in on a three-year overall development deal with “The Sopranos” exec producer Terence Winter.

Pact, which reps Winter’s first overall deal with a net, calls for him to remain with the final two seasons of David Chase’s mob drama while also developing new drama and comedy projects for the pay cabler.

This year Winter picked up his second Emmy nomination for penning the episode “Eloise.” He was also nominated for writing in 2001.

Past season of HBO’s critically hailed hourlong averaged nearly 11 million total viewers per episode. Penultimate season of “The Sopranos” unspools March 7.

Before joining the show in 1999, Winter’s TV credits included Fox’s animated half-hour “The PJs,” “Diagnosis Murder” for CBS, “Sister, Sister” for WB and syndie series “Xena: Warrior Princess.”

Winter is repped by CAA and attorney Bob Getman at Armstrong Hirsch.
