Scribe will stick with Fox's 'Hope' while developing for Eye studio

“Raising Hope” creator Greg Garcia has inked a rich four-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios.

Pact, which has an unusually long term, calls for Garcia to continue as showrunner on the Fox comedy while also developing new projects for the Eye’s studio.

“Greg is truly one of the funniest people I know, and certainly one of the elite comedy showrunners,” said David Stapf, CBS TV Studios prexy. “He is a rare creative talent, who has created successful shows in both the multi- and single-camera form across a variety of networks.”

Family comedy “Raising Hope” has just wrapped its sophomore season on Fox. Garcia was also creator/exec producer of NBC’s “My Name is Earl” and co-creator with Alan Kirschenbaum of the CBS laffer “Yes Dear.” He earned a writing Emmy in 2006 for the pilot seg of “Earl.”

Garcia’s repped by CAA and Sam Fischer of Ziffren Brittenham.
