Howard Gordon gets pod deal at 20th

'24' showrunner launches Teakwood Lane

Howard Gordon is hanging a shingle at 20th Century Fox TV.

Establishing production pod Teakwood Lane at the studio is a no-brainer for 20th TV, where Gordon has helped mint multiple franchises as the showrunner for Fox’s “24,” Showtime’s “Homeland” and a writer-producer for Fox’s “The X-Files.”

“We think Teakwood Lane has the potential to be a powerhouse supplier of distinctive television series and are thrilled to house it here at 20th,” said 20th TV chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden.

In addition to continuing to oversee “Homeland” with Alex Gansa, Gordon will be charged with developing new series for broadcast and cable. He’s hired Hugh Fitzpatrick, formerly VP of TV development at BBC Worldwide Prods., as Teakwood’s head of TV, where he’ll shepherd the slate and tap writing talent to work under Gordon.

“All of us felt that creating a company is a natural evolution for me, a chance to leverage my experience and my relationships to develop new shows for the studio,” Gordon said.

Gordon’s other credits include “Angel,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Sisters” and “Spenser: For Hire.” He’s also published a pair of novels, “Gideon’s War” and “Hard Target.”

Gordon is repped by WME.
