Jennie Snyder Urman, who has been busy this pilot season with projects “Sober Companion” for Fox and “Jane the Virgin” for CW, has closed a three-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios.

Both pilots grew out of her previous overall with the studio.

“Jennie’s had a remarkable pilot season, selling a comedy as well as a very unique twist on the most popular genre in the world, the telenovela,” said David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios. “There is truly nothing she can’t do. Jennie is one of the most versatile, inventive writers and showrunners working today and we feel very fortunate that CBS will continue to be her home for years and years to come.”

Urman, who created the short-lived CW show “Emily Owens, MD” and penned the romantic comedy feature “Something Borrowed,” expressed similar sentiments, saying “I am thrilled to continue my great relationship with David Stapf, Julie McNamara, Kate Adler and Jim Donnelly. I love everything about CBS Studios, especially getting to work with both the drama and comedy teams.”

Her credits also include shows “Gilmore Girls,” “Men in Trees” and “Reign.”

She is represented by UTA and attorney Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller.
