Law & Order” veteran writer-producer Rene Balcer has left UTA to return to his original agency, CAA.

Balcer joined UTA, which also represents “L&O” creator Dick Wolf, in 2010 after first signing with CAA in 2001.

“I remained on good terms with (CAA), just as I remain on good terms with UTA where I still have projects that we’re working on together,” Balcer said in an email.

The Emmy winner will be represented by CAA agents Adam Berkowitz and Rob Kenneally.

Balcer is currently developing the FBI period drama “WonderWorld” at Starz with Owen Wilson and fellow “L&O” alum Fred Berner. Balcer will serve as showrunner, in addition to writing and exec producing the series.

He’s also working on the mystery series “DarkNet” for Kapital Entertainment and an untitled TV show for China Media Capital (Shanghai).

Balcer has written for the “Law & Order” franchise since its start in 1990. He’s exec produced the original “Law & Order” series, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “Law & Order: LA,” in addition to writing for the UK and Russian spinoffs.
