George pilots pact

Eye inks development deal with scribe-producer

HOLLYWOOD — Scribe-producer Terry George (“The District”) has inked a pilot development deal with Viacom Prods. and CBS.

Pact calls for George to produce and direct an hourlong pilot for the Eye web’s 2002-03 development slate. Network already had a pilot commitment in place with George; scribe then opted to sign with Viacom to produce the project.

George said he chose Viacom Prods. for the company’s “reputation for collaboration and support.”

“I hope to add to (their) great lineup,” he said.

Most recently, George created “The District,” the Craig T. Nelson cop drama that was a solid success for CBS last season Saturdays at 10 p.m. He’ll remain exec producer of the skein this season.

In addition to “The District,” George wrote and directed the HBO pic “A Bright Shining Lie.”

On the feature side, George snagged an Oscar nom in 1994 for “In the Name of the Father,” which was co-written by Jim Sheridan. His other feature credits include “The Boxer” and “Some Mother’s Son.”

George’s upcoming feature credits include the Bruce Willis starrer “Hart’s War.”
