Mazzara walks back to Fox TV

Inks overall deal with Fox TV Studios

Glen Mazzara has inked an overall deal with Fox TV Studios. Pact calls for the development of cable projects under Mazzara’s new banner, 44 Strong Prods.

FTVS and Mazzara have a history, as the producer-scribe logged six seasons on FX skein “The Shield,” which was produced by the studio. Mazzara is best known for serving as showrunner of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” in the second and third seasons that saw the zombie apocalypse series turn into a ratings smash for the cabler.

Mazzara exited “Walking Dead” late last year after clashing over budgets and creative issues with AMC. He said he was eager to get back to work at a familiar studio under the direction of FTVS prexy David Madden. Deal calls for Mazzara to develop cable projects for FTVS.

“I’ve had a long history with Fox Television Studios, and it feels good to set up shop at a studio that I respect and trust, especially with David leading the charge,” Mazzara said. “FTVS is giving me the opportunity to develop my own projects and to shepherd other writers on their own shows. This is where I want to be, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner as I take the next step in my career.”

Madden added: ” ‘The Shield’ was the show that really put FTVS on the map, and Glen was a huge part of that show’s success. … Like all television studios, we’re writer-oriented, but since we’re leaner than most, the people we’re in business with need to possess a profound level of fierceness and obsession, and Glen eminently qualifies. Closing this deal is a testament to our admiration for Glen.”
