Producer Hall inks overall with 20th TV

'Hope' producer signs 2-year deal

Barbara Hall, a consulting producer on the CBS drama “Chicago Hope,” has inked a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV worth $1.5 million-$2 million, sources say.

Hall oversees the “Chicago Hope” writing staff alongside executive producers John Tinker and Bill D’Elia, and with her new deal, she’ll be developing and producing new dramas for 20th.

She already has one new project in the works at CBS. Hall and Henry Bromell, exec producer of “413 Hope Street” and former executive producer of NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street,” are developing a one-hour pilot, tentatively titled “The Innocence,” about a New York law professor who, along with his students, opens up cases that were miscarriages of justice.

Before joining “Chicago Hope,” Hall worked with Bromell as a producer on “Northern Exposure” and “I’ll Fly Away.” Hall started out writing for the series “A Year in the Life” and “Moonlighting.” Hall and Bromell are repped by UTA.
