'Up All Night' creator sets 2-year pact, joins 'Murder Police' as co-ep

“Up All Night” creator Emily Spivey has set a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Pact calls for Spivey to work on current series for 20th TV and develop new projects. Spivey will kick off the deal by serving as co-exec producer on Fox toon series “Murder Police.”

“Emily is one of those unique, funny female voices that we have had our eyes on for some time — we’ve been big fans ever since she worked for us on King of the Hill at the very start of her career. She’s an incredible talent, who can do it all- live action, animation, you name it,” said 20th Century Fox TV chairman Gary Newman. “Bringing her on board is all part of our strategy of building the best comedy bench in town.”

Scribe began her career on Fox laffers including “King of the Hill” and “Mad TV,” before moving to the Peacock to work on “Parks and Recreation” and “Saturday Night Live.” She created “Up All Night” for NBC and exec produced, but ankled the series at the beginning of its second season last fall. Skein has since undergone a format change from single-camera to multi-cam and lost star Christina Applegate while co-star Will Arnett just took a role in a pilot for CBS.

Spivey is repped by UTA and Hansen Jacobson.
