20th signs Alex Cary to overall deal

'Homeland' EP gets multi-year pact

20th Century Fox has signed a multi-year overall deal with “Homeland” executive producer Alex Cary.

He will stay on “Homeland” in addition to developing new programming for the studio, where he began as a story editor on “Lie To Me” before rising to showrunner.

20th chairman Gary Newman believes Cary will be in-demand next development season after the next season of “Homeland” is complete because of his demonstrated knack for writing procedurals with strong character development. “He’s great at talent management, has tremendous leadership skills and most importantly, he’s a fantastic writer,” he said.

The British-born Cary was co-EP of the Showtime series, which is produced by Fox21, in its first season but was bumped up to oversee the series alongside Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa, all of whom are currently writing the second season.

Cary is repped by WME, attorney Adam Kaller and managed by Matt Ochacher and New Wave Entertainment.
