Scribe still tracing lines

Amann inks 'Trace' deal

“Without a Trace” scribe David Amann has inked a deal that will keep him on the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced whodunit for three more years.

Under the terms of the pact, Amann will be bumped up to exec producer of the Warner Bros./CBS Par Network TV skein starting with the 2007-08 season. He’s currently co-exec producer.

Amann said he was initially attracted to “Trace” because of its “interesting marriage of procedural and personal drama.” The fact that the universe of players changes each week also keeps things interesting.

“There’s an opportunity to write complex characters both in terms of the standing cast — the agents on the show — and the guest stars,” he said, adding that he was glad to continue working with a scribe team that features such a breadth of experience.

Amann joined the staff of “Trace” in 2004, having spent the previous two years working as co-exec producer of “Crossing Jordan.” Before that, scribe wrote on “The X-Files” for four seasons and spent two years working on David E. Kelley’s “Chicago Hope.”

Jan Nash and Greg Walker will serve as showrunners on the upcoming season of “Trace,” which moves into its new 10 p.m. Sunday timeslot next month.
