Glen Mazzara Signs with Fox


LOS ANGELES: Glen Mazzara, who recently departed the role of showrunner on The Walking Dead, has been signed to an overall deal with Fox Television Studios.

Mazzara will be working with the Studio through his production company, 44 Strong Pods. He already has established a relationship Fox Television Studios, having worked on FX’s The Shield for six seasons.

David Madden, the studio’s president, said: “We are proud to bring Glen back home. Like all television studios, we’re writer-oriented, but since we’re leaner than most, the people we’re in business with need to possess a profound level of fierceness and obsession, and Glen eminently qualifies. Closing this deal is a testament to our admiration for Glen, who is already brewing a concoction of ideas and stories that we are eager to serve to the world.”

Mazzara commented: “I’ve had a long history with Fox Television Studios, and it feels good to set up shop at a studio that I respect and trust, especially with David leading the charge. FTVS is giving me the opportunity to develop my own projects and to shepherd other writers on their own shows. This is where I want to be, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner as I take the next step in my career.
