…Not the usual order of things, is it? Which makes Stephen Gaghan our kinda guy.
‘Syriana’ Director Stephen Gaghan Inks Fox 21 Pod Deal
by Lacey Rose
Academy Award-winning screenwriterStephen Gaghan has inked a pod deal with Fox 21.
As part of the exclusive two-year pact, Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana) will supervise other writers as well as write cable projects for himself. The latter is a prospect that excites Fox 21 president Bert Salke,whose current roster of series includes Showtime’s Homeland and FX’s Sons of Anarchy.
Teacher! Teacher! We’ve got questions!
- Does this article really mean that TV has become so difficult to break into that you need to be an Oscar winner to do it?
- What’s a “pod deal,” dammit? We thought it meant a studio deal with a nonwriting producer. But, plainly, Gaghan doesn’t fit that suit of clothes
