‘Fringe’ producer seals deal with WBTV

Pinkner inks seven-figure overall deal

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

As part of the two-year overall, 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 also served as an exec producer on Abrams’ “Alias” and “Lost.”

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

Under 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” are expected to return in their same Thursday night one-two punch again next fall.

Pinkner and his writing team earned a 2009 WGA Award nomination for “Fringe.”

He serves as EP on “Fringe” along with Abrams, Bryan Burk and J.H. Wyman.
