American Dad Exec Producers Ink 2-Year Deal with FOX

Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz, the exec producers of AMERICAN DAD, have signed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV Studio, reports the trades.

As part of the seven-figure deal that contains an option for a third year, the duo will continue as DAD exec producers with Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, Matt Weitzman and David Zuckerman. Additionally, they will develop new live-action projects for the studio.

"It is incredibly satisfying for them to return to the fold not only to work on a key show for us but also to get a chance to develop," THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER quoted 20th TV president Gary Newman. "They really impressed us all with their work on AMERICAN DAD and we decided that we wanted to make a deal with them."
