Jerrod Carmichael Signs Overall Deal at 20th Century Fox TV

Twentieth Century Fox Television has signed Jerrod Carmichael to an overall deal. Under the agreement, the comic and his longtime producing partner Ari Katcher will develop and produce new projects for the studio through Carmichael’s company Morningside Entertainment.

Twentieth Century Fox TV produced “The Carmichael Show,” a multi-camera comedy that the comic created and starred on, and which aired on NBC for three seasons, ending earlier this year.

The end of ‘The Carmichael Show’ was a heartbreak for everyone at this studio, and Howard [Kurtzman, president of business operations for the studio] and I swore we’d be back in business with Jerrod if we had anything to say about it,” said Jonnie Davis, president of creative affairs for 20th Century Fox TV. “Lucky for us, he said ‘yes.’ This is a guy whose inspiration is Norman Lear and it’s not hard to see why– he speaks about what’s happening in the world and he gets people talking even if the subject matter is uncomfortable. Oh, and he’s also hilarious. He’s an incredible talent and a ‘television savant’ and we’re thrilled he’s making 20th his exclusive home.”

In a review last year of the “The Carmichael Show” season two, Variety‘s Maureen Ryan wrote, “‘The Carmichael Show’ is proof that there’s a lot of life yet left in multicams, as long as they breezily combine competence with nicely crafted observations and a dash of irreverence.”
