Jerrod Carmichael Signs a Two-Year Deal with 20th Century Fox TV

carmichael_hboThe Carmichael Show might be over, but Jerrod Carmichael has some new TV projects in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comedian has signed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television to develop and produce projects alongside his partner Ari Katcher. 20th Century Fox was also the studio behind Carmichael’s canceled NBC show. “The end of The Carmichael Show was a heartbreak for everyone at this studio,” 20th Century exec Jonnie Davis said on the news, “and I swore we’d be back in business with Jerrod if we had anything to say about it. 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.”
