Drew Goddard Inks Big Overall Deal With 20th Century Fox TV

Former Daredevil and The Defenders executive producer Drew Goddard has signed a major multi-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV. No one would comment on the terms but I hear the agreement is for four years and is worth in the neighborhood of $50 million-$70 million total.

The rich talent pact, which had been in the works for weeks, is the first to be announced by the studio following Disney’s $71.3B acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets, including 20th TV. Under the exclusive pact, which is effective immediately, Goddard will write, create, direct and develop new television projects for the studio for all platforms.

Top film and TV writer Goddard was among a slew of A-list writer-producers who have been seeking overall deals in the past couple of months, sparking bidding wars among traditional studios and Svod platforms that have sent prices through the roof and deal lengths to 4-5 years.
