‘Burn Notice’ Creator Signs Overall with 20th TV, Fox TV Studios

Matt Nix, the creator and executive producer of USA’s long-running “Burn Notice,” has signed a new overall deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox Television Studios for both broadcast and cable.

The deal, which was announced today by Twentieth Century Fox Television chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman and Fox Television Studios president David Madden, comes at a busy time for Nix. He also created USA’s new drama “Complications” and co-created the upcoming Billy Crystal-Josh Gad FX series “The Comedians,” which he is exec producing with Larry Charles and Ben Wexler. Other items in development include an HBO series and several feature film projects.

Nix has had a overall deal in place with Fox Television Studios since 2008 that primarily focused on cable properties. His credits also include creating the cop comedy “The Good Guys” with Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks and writing a “Burn Notice” TV movie.

“Matt is that rare find in television: a gifted creator, writer, showrunner, producer and director, as well as a genuinely good person,” said Madden. “‘Burn Notice’ is not only the most commercially successful show in FTVS’ history, it’s also a show that upended the spy genre and unleashed Matt’s signature blend of snarky humor, dizzying action and truly lovable characters. Dana and Gary have been enormously supportive of Matt all along and are eager to help him expand into the broadcast arena and other interesting platforms. And, in the meantime, we will be launching two remarkable Nix shows in 2015 of which we are enormously proud. Quite simply, Matt Nix is the reason you get into this business; all of us at Fox are honored to call him our partner and our friend.”

Nix is repped by WME, Mikkel Bondesen at Fuse Management, and attorney David Colden.
