Scott Rudin Signs First-Look Deal With Fox Networks

Prolific producer Scott Rudin has signed a three-year first-look deal with Fox Networks Group.

The three-year deal will see Rudin and his Scott Rudin Productions develop projects for cablers FX and National Geographic and the Fox broadcast network. Projects developed for FX Networks and National Geographic Channel will be produced by FX Productions, while those developed for Fox will be produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.

“Scott is an extraordinary creative producer, and we are thrilled he is choosing to bring his unique passion for storytelling and storytellers to Fox's unique portfolio of studios and channels,” said Peter Rice, chairman & CEO of Fox Networks Group.

Known predominantly for his films, including Ex Machina, Top Five, Inherent Vice, Captain Phillips and The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rudin served as an executive producer for a pair of HBO series in The Newsroom and Silicon Valley, which were developed under a previous pact with the pay cabler.
