Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage forge a Fake Empire

20081203_joshsteph_250x375 Josh Schwartz (“Chuck”) and longtime collaborator Stephanie Savage
(“Gossip Girl”) are plotting an expanded TV empire.

The duo have
sealed a rich, multi-year pact with Warner Bros. TV to launch Fake
Empire, a new shingle set up at Warner Bros. TV.

Schwartz had
already been set up at Warner Bros. TV under a hefty eight-figure deal,
while Savage held an overall deal at the studio as well. In a bit of
crafty dealmaking, the duo’s WME reps took the key elements from both
scribes’ deals and merged them together.

Now, rather than hold
typical producing deals at Warner Bros., Schwartz’s and Savage’s Fake
Empire will take its place along side some of the studio’s other major
pods — such as the ones run by Jerry Bruckheimer, J.J. Abrams and McG.
