Peter Lenkov inks overall deal at CBS

Deal calls for 'Hawaii Five-0' showrunner to develop for Eye studio

“Hawaii Five-0” executive producer Peter Lenkov has inked a three-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios.

He will continue as showrunner for the CBS series but the deal also has a development component. Lenkov developed the remake of the classic gumshoe drama series with executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. “Five-0” was one of the few freshman series standouts for broadcasters last season.

“There’s always been a comfort level for me with CBS,” said Lenkov, noting he first worked with the network 20 years ago on a special titled “Ghost Stories.”

“Five-0” has become a cash cow for CBS Corp., having already secured a place in off-network syndication via deal with TNT, not to mention licenses in 200 countries around the globe.

Lenkov previously served as executive producer on “CSI: NY.” Other TV credits include “24,” “The District” and “La Femme Nikita.”

Lenkov has also kept busy in other mediums, having written and produced several films, including “Demolition Man,” “Son in Law” and “Jury Duty.” He has also written several comicbooks for Dark Horse Publishing, including “R.I.P.D.,” which is in the works at Universal as a feature.

Lenkov is repped by CAA and attorney Jeff Finkelstein of Del Shaw.
