Jeff Eastin Sets New Overall Deal With 20th Century Fox TV, Fox Television Studios

Jeff Eastin, creator and exec producer of USA Network series “White Collar” and “Graceland,” has signed a new overall deal with both 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Television Studios.

Under the deal Eastin will continue his role as executive producer on “Graceland” while developing new projects for broadcast and cable. Eastin has had an overall deal set with Fox Television Studios since 2010, where he focused on cable series, and joins a small club of showrunners holding such a deal across Fox’s primary television production houses with the new agreement.

“Fox Television Studios has been my home for half a decade and they have been a wonderful creative partner,” said Eastin.  “I look forward to expanding that relationship with the team at Twentieth Century Fox Television.”

Michael Thorn, 20th TV’s exec VP of development, said Eastin’s “offbeat sensibility gives him a unique perspective on franchise television shows, and we are excited to develop his next hit for broadcast.”

“He is an inspired creator, writer and showrunner and we are thrilled to continue to develop breakthrough programming with Jeff,” added Nancy Cotton, Fox Television Studios’ senior VP of programming.

Eastin is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.
