The “30 Rock” scribe tribe is prepping for life after Liz Lemon.
Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan, supervising producers on the NBC laffer, are the latest from the show to ink a studio development pact. The pair have set a two-year deal with Sony Pictures TV that will allow them to remain with Universal TV’s “30 Rock” for its final 13 episodes next season. After those segs wrap, they’ll shift their focus to developing new projects for Sony.
The pact for Siegal and Morgan follows the move of Kay Cannon, a “30 Rock” writer since the series’ inception in 2006, to 20th Century Fox TV after being courted by multiple studios (Daily Variety, May 3). Another six-season “30 Rock” alum, Matt Hubbard, recently inked with Universal TV.
Siegal and Morgan have spent the past three seasons on “30 Rock,” rising to supervising producer rank this season. Before that, they logged three years on USA Network’s “Monk.” Other credits include ABC’s “The Knights of Prosperity” and Fox’s “The Return of Jezebel James.”
The Sony pact was brokered by Dennis Kim of the Rothman Brecher Kim Agency and attorney Mitch Smelkinson of Stone Meyer.
