Gale Anne Hurd Renews Valhalla Entertainment Deal with Universal Cable Productions

“The Walking Dead” exec producer Gale Anne Hurd has set a new overall deal with Universal Cable Productions for her Valhalla Entertainment banner.

The renewal comes three years after Hurd first set up shop with UCP, the studio arm for NBCUniversal’s cable channels. At present Valhalla is in the midst of producing the drama series “Hunters” for Syfy and a drama pilot in the works for USA Network, “Falling Water.” Valhalla is also developing a Swedish TV adaptation, “Brothers in Crime,” and working with graphic novel scribe Warren Ellis on his first TV project.

“Our partnership with Universal Cable Productions has been an incredibly collaborative and creative experience,” said Hurd. “Having just renewed our deal, I look forward to a future of innovative and boundary-pushing projects.”

Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, called Hurd “a powerhouse with a passion for making great content.”

Outside of her UCP deal, Hurd shepherds TV’s most-watched drama series, “The Walking Dead” for AMC and is working on its companion series, “Fear the Walking Dead.”
