‘Community’ duo in overall deal at 20th TV

Goldman, Donovan to develop new series

NBC’s “Community” is losing two of its executive producers to an overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan will segue into a two-year pact that will see them join either a new or current series at the studio, in addition to developing new programming.

20th TV had to fight off multiple studios to sign the pair. “They’re enormously funny, very talented writers who have a great attitude and have done fantastic work,” said 20th TV chairman Dana Walden.

The writer-producer duo spent the last six years under overall deals at NBCUniversal, the last three of which were spent as showrunners and writers on “Community.”

The duo started their TV careers as writers on Fox’s “Family Guy”, moving up the ranks to executive story editors. They moved onto ABC’s “Scrubs” as writer/producers for eight seasons, rising to EPs on the show.

Goldman and Donovan are represented by UTA and attorneys PJ Shapiro and Bryan Wolf at Ziffren.
