Mouse TV signs Brady

Touchstone may survive merger

Writer-producer Pam Brady (“Just Shoot Me”) has inked an overall development deal with Disney’s Touchstone TV worth an estimated $6 million over the three-year term.

The pact is among the first pieces of new business that Disney’s TV arm has done since the Mouse House decided to consolidate ABC’s primetime entertainment wing with its production banners (Daily Variety, July 9) into the ABC Entertainment TV Group.

Brady’s new pact suggests that the Touchstone label will survive the merger, possibly as the name of a separate unit being formed within the ABC Entertainment umbrella to produce programming for rival webs. More details on the post-merger restructuring, including likely staff cuts, are expected to come this week from ABC Entertainment co-chairmen Lloyd Braun and Stu Bloomberg.

Brady, 30, was a hot prospect on the free-agent scribe market, with several production outfits vying for her services. Her deal with Touchstone doesn’t kick in until next June, after she’s wrapped her commitment to serve as a producer on the upcoming season on NBC’s “Just Shoot Me.”

Brady also has worked as a consultant/writer on Comedy Central’s “South Park” since its inception in 1997. She co-wrote this summer’s “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut” feature pic along with creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Earlier in her career, Brady was a writer on NBC’s “The John Larroquette Show.” Her deal with Touchstone was negotiated by United Talent Agency and attorney Robert Offer of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Dimer & Klein.
