Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci Pact with CBS TV Studios

TV deal calls for K/O Paper Products to develop projects for Eye's production arm

Busy film and TV hyphenates Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have inked a three-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios.

Pair’s K/O Paper Products shingle had previously been aligned at 20th Century Fox TV, where they are shepherding drama “Sleepy Hollow” for the Fox network’s fall sked. Kurtzman and Orci previously developed the Eye’s successful remake of “Hawaii 5-0” for CBS and CBS TV Studios.

At present the pair are juggling a host of film projects, including the upcoming “Ender’s Game” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which come on the heels of this summer’s releases of “Star Trek: Into Darkness” (which they co-wrote and produced) and “Now You See Me.”

The CBS TV Studios pact covers TV overhead for the company and calls for Kurtzman and Orci as well as K/O Paper Products president Heather Kadin and Aaron Baiers to develop new projects for the studio. Kurtzman and Orci’s other recent TV series was Fox’s cult-fave fantasy “Fringe.”

The deal is another sign of CBS TV Studios’ efforts in the past few years to recruit heavy-hitter producers to its roster.

“Alex and Bob are two of the most coveted writers/producers in features and television for an important reason,” said CBS TV Studios prexy David Stapf. “They have a unique perspective on what it takes to develop a modern day blockbuster. We have been fortunate to work with them closely on ‘Hawaii 5-0,’ and know first-hand the creativity and energy they bring to a project, as well as their instinct for making something into a big event.”

K/O Paper Products is repped by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler.
