Showrunner looks rosy for WBTV

Pinkner seals seven-figure overall deal

“Fringe” exec producer Jeff Pinkner has sealed a rich seven-figure overall deal at Warner Bros. TV.

As part of the two-year overall pact, Pinkner will continue to serve as co-showrunner on the Fox thriller, and eventually develop new fare for the studio as well.

Pinkner is a longtime collaborator of “Fringe” exec producer J.J. Abrams, having served as an exec producer on Abrams’ “Alias” and “Lost.”

Pinkner’s other credits include drama series “October Road,” “The Street” and “The Beast.”

On Pinkner’s watch, “Fringe” has become a critical favorite. And paired with “Bones,” the show has helped give Fox its first solid Thursday night lineup in years.

“Bones” and “Fringe” (which already has a third-season pickup) are expected to return to try to deliver their same Thursday night one-two punch again next fall.

Pinkner and his writing team earned a WGA Award nomination last year for “Fringe.” The series, co-created by Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, is exec produced by Pinkner, Abrams, Bryan Burk and J.H. Wyman.
