Seven-figure pact covers Quill’s services on “Scrubs” next season should the show return for another year. Deal begins July 1.
Quill, who has been with “Scrubs” since 2003, was bumped up to exec producer midway through the current season.
Julia Franz, exec VP of Touchstone Television, said Quill’s services were much in demand around town.
“The work he’s done for us and the leadership he’s shown on ‘Scrubs’ has only cemented our enthusiasm for him,” she said.
Quill said his relationship with Franz and Touchstone’s track record cemented his decision to sign the first overall deal of his career with the studio.
“They’ve done a great job with development on hourlong shows, and they really seem focused now on coming up with comedies,” he said. “It seems like a really stable, good environment for writers.”
Before “Scrubs,” BWCS-repped Quill spent two seasons on NBC’s “Good Morning, Miami.” He also was a scribe-producer on “Spin City,” the ABC laffer co-created by Bill Lawrence, who created “Scrubs.”
