New life at Touchstone

Todd will work on series and develop new projects

Scribe Don Todd, who most recently co-exec produced the ABC series “Life as We Know It,” is sticking with Touchstone TV, signing a new two-year deal with the studio.

Under the seven-figure deal, Todd will work on Touchstone series and develop new projects for the studio. He’s currently consulting on “Inconceivable,” Touchstone’s frosh hourlong skein for NBC.

Todd developed two pilots for Touchstone and ABC this past season, the private eye drama “Soccer Moms” (with Marla Ginsburg) and a laffer starring Peter Dinklage (repartnering with “Life” exec producer Stu Bloomberg). The Dinklage project may still see new life — and if it goes forward, it will become Todd’s chief focus.

Touchstone exec VP of creative Julia Franz called Todd “one of the funniest people I know.

“Don has been a utility player for us in both development and on our current shows, working on half-hours and one-hours for the studio,” she said. “He is an exceptionally gifted writer.”

Todd’s credits include “Brother’s Keeper,” “The Hughleys,” “Caroline in the City,” “Dave’s World” and “I’m With Her.”
