’30 Rock’ Alum Matt Hubbard Signs Overall Deal With Universal TV

Universal TV has inked a fresh, two-year overall deal with Matt Hubbard that calls for the scribe-producer to develop and supervise new projects for the studio.

As a part of the pact, Hubbard will serve as exec producer on “Cabot College,” a comedy hailing from him and fellow “30 Rock” alum Tina Fey. Hubbard penned the pilot for “Cabot College,” which has a series commitment at Fox and is being produced by Universal TV.

Hubbard is currently a consulting producer on NBC’s “Parks and Rec,” and logged seven seasons as a writer-producer on Universal TV-produced “30 Rock.” His work on “30 Rock” episode “Reunion” earned him an writing Emmy in 2009.

“Matt is a funny, smart writer with the ability to write hard jokes and great story,” said Bela Bajaria, exec veep at the studio. ” We are excited to be producing his show ‘Cabot College.’ He had an amazing run on ’30 Rock’ for us and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him.”

Hubbard is represented by UTA and attorney Ken Richman at Hansen Jacobson.
