“Danielle is a superstar; she’s hilarious, brilliant, creative and can run a show like nobody’s business,” said Jonnie Davis, president of creative affairs for 20th Century Fox TV. “Her collaboration with Jerrod on ‘Carmichael’ was spectacular, but just the beginning for her, and locking her in to an exclusive deal here was a big priority for Howard [Kurtzman, president of business affairs for the studio] and me. She’s a huge talent.”
