U TV inks Alexander for development deal

Universal TV has inked a two-year development deal with “Seinfeld” co-star Jason Alexander, who will develop and produce — but not star in — new TV series and made-fors.

Alexander will be creating comedies and dramas through his AngelArk Prods., which has specialized in live-action musicals for the big and small screens.

Alexander, who will serve as president of the company, is interested in producing and directing projects, and Universal will fund the company’s development and overhead. Jenny Birchfield-Eick will be VP of the company (formerly Daeson Entertainment).

Alexander remains a free agent in TV, and AngelArk will continue to develop feature films for outside studios.

While Alexander is best known for his role as George Costanza on “Seinfeld,” he has also worked behind the camera, directing episodes of the sitcom, the Castle Rock feature film “For Better or Worse” and an episode of the AMC series “Remember WENN.”

His deal was cut by Universal TV prexy Ken Solomon, Marc Schwartz at the William Morris Agency and attorney Michael Gendler of Gendler, Codikow & Carroll.
