PRODUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT

Lionsgate TV signed reality producers David Shumsky and Mark Harris to create original programming through the duo’s Ohana Pictures imprint. Under the new deal, Lionsgate gets exclusive rights to unscripted TV projects plus first call on any scripted series in development. The first series under the deal is competition series Kicking & Screaming, slated to debut this year on Fox.

Keshet International signed a first-look distribution and development deal with UK-based production entity Woodcut Media. KI will get exclusive access to Woodcut’s new nonscripted crime slate for worldwide distribution, building on its emerging slate of non-scripted, English-language programming.

ABC gave pilot orders to two new projects: Chunk & Bean and Square Roots. The former, written by Ed Herro and Brian Donovan and exec-produced by Dave Hemingson, follows the unlikely friendship of two misfits. The latter, written and exec-produced by Vijal Patel (Black-ish), is about a man who hails from a family of engineers who’s determined to use his logic to help the people with issues – whether they want his help or not. Both originated at ABC Studios.

Pinewood Studios Group and UK-based StoryFirst PST Limited are in a new venture called Pinewood Television. The company will create, develop and finance drama series for the international market, with Helen Gregory serving as creative director.

Fox ordered two drama pilots: A.P.B., which hails from 20th Century Fox TV, and Recon, from Warner Bros. TV. A.P.B., from writer David Slack (Person of Interest), and co-creator/exec producer Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow), follows a tech billionaire who buys a troubled police precinct after a loved one is murdered. Recon is written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) and exec-produced by TVD co-developers/exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec.
