Matt Tarses signs with Sony TV

Writer seals two-year overall deal

Sony Pictures TV has sealed a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with comedy scribe Matt Tarses.

Tarses most recently served as the exec producer on CBS’ well-received but short-lived half-hour “Worst Week.” He’ll develop new half-hour skeins for the studio.

Scribe is already planning to start working on his first project under the deal, which he’ll take out to the networks in the coming weeks. Unlike most overall deals these days, Tarses won’t immediately be assigned to an existing Sony show, though he may still be brought in to work on one at some point.

Tarses was previously set up at Universal Media Studios, where he adapted the U.K. “Worst Week of My Life” into the U.S. version for CBS.

Before that, he created the 2006 Peacock comedy “Teachers.”

Tarses’ other credits include “Scrubs,” “Sports Night,” “Norm” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
