Matt Reeves back to small screen with 20th TV

'Felicity' co-creator will develop drama projects for studio

Twentieth Century Fox TV has inked an overall deal with “Felicity” co-creator Matt Reeves.

Pact will have the scribe-helmer creating, writing, directing and supervising drama series at the studio.

Since the end of “Felicity” in 2002, Reeves has kept busy directing feature films, including “Cloverfield” and “Let Me In.” Reeves was tapped by Warner Bros. to direct the upcoming “Twilight Zone” pic.

With his hands deep in the feature world, Reeves’ return to the smallscreen is, according to 20th Century Fox TV chairman Gary Newman, derived from “a fundamental love for TV.”

“He expressed a lot of interest in getting back into television,” Newman told Variety. “Particularly, it’s the idea of doing character work where characters have lives that go on for years. It’s a kind of storytelling that doesn’t exist in the feature world, but it’s fundamental to who he is as a creative talent.”

With films that dip into horror and action genres now under his belt, Reeves has shown that his creative aesthetic expands beyond the college and relationship-centric world of “Felicity.”

Newman believes “that’s the excitement of being in business with Matt. …We’re feeling excited about the opportunity for him to tell some stories that I’m sure have been building up in him for awhile.”

Reeves is repped by CAA, 3 Arts Entertainment and attorney Karl Austen.
