NBC U ‘House’ in order

Semel pacts with Peacock in 2-year, seven-figure deal

NBC Universal Television is welcoming helmer David Semel into the “House” via a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with the studio.

Pact calls for Semel to co-exec produce and direct the NUTS-produced Fox hit “House.” He’ll also develop and exec produce new series projects for the studio.

Semel directed the pilot for NBC’s “American Dreams” and served as exec producer of the series. More recently, he directed the first seg of the Peacock limited skein “Revelations” and the pilot for the Fox drama pilot “Windfall.”

Tellingly, NBC recently picked up “Windfall” from Fox and is redeveloping the Regency TV project with an eye toward giving it a series greenlight.

NUTS prexy Angela Bromstad said Semel’s work on those projects led her to make a deal with the helmer.

“He has a great range and is one of the most talented directors on television,” she said. 

Exec producer Katie Jacobs welcomed Semel’s addition to the “House” staff, calling him a “bright, talented director and producer.”

He “completely understands the complexities of our show,” she said.

Semel’s previous episodic TV credits range from “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “7th Heaven” to David E. Kelley skeins “Ally McBeal,” “The Practice,” “Chicago Hope” and “Boston Public.”
