Writer/Producer Ronald D. Moore Signs Two-Year NBC Universal TV Deal

NBC Universal Television Studio has completed a new, two-year overall production deal with writer/producer Ronald D. Moore (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE) to develop various projects for the studio.

Moore's new deal allows him to continue as one of the show-running exec producers of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA for NBC Universal's SCI FI Channel. Moore's development plans are expected to skew toward SCI FI programming.

Among one of the two projects currently in development is the NBC pilot, PEN AND THE SWORD, with Moore serving as the writer/exec producer of the fantasy drama.

For SCI FI Channel, Moore will exec produce WAREHOUSE 13, a present-day, sci-fi adventure pilot. Under the supervision of Moore, Brent Mote will serve as the writer for the series.

"This is a major coup for us to partner with Ron Moore, whose prolific work is recognized throughout the industry for its wit and creativity," said Angela Bromstad, president, NBC Universal Television Studio. "It is also important to note that he will continue to work on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, which continues to deliver critical acclaim and viewers."

Moore is developer/exec producer/writer for the current series incarnation of the critically acclaimed BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, which was the #2 Friday series on cable this summer. He also wrote/exec produced the 2003 miniseries that inspired the new series.

In addition, Moore wrote and exec produced the first season of the HBO series CARNIVALE and for the science fiction series, ROSWELL (where he was also co-exec producer). He's penned many episodes of STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE (including a stint as co-exec producer), and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION AND STAR TREK: VOYAGER (as co-exec producer).

Moore's other television writing credits include the series GOOD VS. EVIL and he was consulting producer on the series TOUCHING EVIL.

Moore also scored on the big screen with his story for the film, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE II, and his screenplay for STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT.

Moore is represented by CAA and attorney Shep Rosenman of Katz, Golden and Sullivan.
