Extended Holliday

Scribe scrawls a new deal at NBC U

Former “King of the Hill” scribe Cheryl Holliday is continuing her relationship with NBC Universal, inking a two-year development deal with the Peacock’s studio arm.

Seven-figure pact comes after a busy year that saw Holliday develop a pair of as-yet-unfilmed pilots via NBC U-based DreamWorks TV. CBS gave a cast-contingent order to the comedy “Generations,” while NBC ordered “Baraboo 2010.”

Eye project has been rolled to midseason 2007. “Baraboo 2010” was first given a cast-contingent pilot order last July, making it a longshot to go forward.

“Cheryl’s voice is authentic, she’s prolific, and she writes beautifully in both multi- and single-camera,” said Shelley McCrory, senior VP of comedy for NBC U Television Studio.

Holliday spent several years on “King of the Hill,” sharing the Fox comedy’s 1999 Emmy for animated skein. More recently, she wrote for NBC U/DreamWorks comedy “Father of the Pride.”

Scribe’s other credits include “Norm,” “Martin” and “Costello,” the eponymous laffers toplined by Norm MacDonald, Martin Lawrence and Sue Costello, respectively.
