NBC Signs First-Look Production Deal with Nick Cannon


UNIVERSAL CITY: NBC has entered into a first-look production deal with America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon and his NCredible Entertainment banner.

Cannon and his business partner Michael Goldman are the principals of NCredible, which will develop a range of scripted and unscripted programming for the network. Cannon is also set to return as host of the NBC reality competition America’s Got Talent next summer.

“We are gratified to know that this new agreement will expand our successful working relationship with Nick beyond America’s Got Talent and allow him to further draw on his notable creative instincts,” said Paul Telegdy, the president of alternative and late night programming at NBC Entertainment. “Nick already has produced content for many entertainment genres and formats, and we look forward with great anticipation to his cutting-edge ideas in the months to come.”

"Working closely with Paul Telegdy and the folks at NBC has been incredibly rewarding. I am thrilled to expand my role and contributions by creating original programming for the NBCUniversal team," added Cannon.
