Deal calls for thesp to develop series project with studio
Wilmer Valderrama has inked a development pact with 20th Century Fox TV, which aims to develop a series with the “That ’70s Show” alum.
The one-year pact calls for Valderrama to serve as a producer on any projects he develops with the studio. If nothing materializes during this pilot season, he may join the cast of another 20th production. He’s about to begin lensing a guest arc on 20th’s Fox laffer “Raising Hope.”
Valderrama has been fielding a range of TV, film and digital projects in recent yeas as a thesp and producer. He’s creator and exec producer of MTV Tres’ “Ricardo Laguna Project” and created the Web series “King of the Floor” for Electus’ YouTube Chanel NuevOn.
He’ll be seen in Spike Lee’s upcoming pic “The Girl is in Trouble.”
He’s repped by UTA, the Collective and attorney Michael Gendler of Gendler & Kelly.
