Under the new pact, King will develop new projects for both network and cable via her Long Lake Media production company, which is based at WBTV. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The multi-year deal keeps King in the WBTV family for years to come, after “Pretty Little Liars” comes to an end next year. The Freeform series returns with its final ten episodes in April 2017, and will be followed by King’s next series, “Famous In Love,” starring Bella Thorne.
Aside from “PLL” and “Famous In Love,” King has several projects in the works with WBTV, including “The Perfectionists” at Freeform, which is based on the books by Sara Shepard, the author of “Pretty Little Liars.”
King’s relationship with the studio dates back to 2009 when she developed “Liars,” which still ranks as Freeform’s top series.
In addition to the overall deal, King has named Lauren Wagner executive vice president of Long Lake Media where she will head development. Wagner comes from Kevin Williamson’s Outerbanks Entertainment, also based at WBTV.
King is repped by WME.
