‘Sex’ scribe inks with U

Hartman Edwards to board 'Dreams,' create series

HOLLYWOOD — Becky Hartman Edwards (“Sex and the City”) has inked a producing and development deal with Universal Network Television.

Scribe has come on board as co-exec producer of the studio’s new NBC drama “American Dreams,” a co-production with NBC Studios and Dick Clark Prods. The deal also includes a development component that calls for Hartman Edwards to create and write series programming for U.

Universal Network Television programming prexy Sarah Timberman said that while “Dreams” will be “first priority” for Hartman Edwards, “we can’t wait to have the opportunity to develop with her.

“Becky has shown herself to not only have one of the sharpest wits in television, but also a real feeling for storytelling that’s emotionally grounded,” Timberman said.

Waiting for her

Timberman has known Hartman Edwards for nearly a decade and has “been waiting patiently” for the scribe to become available.

“It’s gratifying to finally have the right combination of opportunities to offer her,” Timberman said.

Most recently, Hartman Edwards served as a consulting producer on the NBC laffer “Leap of Faith” and the ABC drama “Thieves.” She also co-created and exec produced the Warner Bros. TV pilot “Spy Girl” in 2001 and exec produced the WB Network pilot “The O’Keefes.”

Scribe’s other small screen credits include co-exec producer on “Jack & Jill” and supervising producer for “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Living Single” and “Suddenly Susan.” She began her career in 1990 as exec story editor on “In Living Color.”

Hartman Edwards is repped by Endeavor and Del, Shaw, Moonves, Tanaka & Finkelstein.
