ABC signs former 'Lost' showrunner Carlton Cuse to multi-year deal to create new shows
Walt Disney Co. TV network ABC said on Wednesday it's signed a multi-year deal with former "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse to create and produce new shows across all network, cable and streaming platforms. The news comes days after "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes was poached by Netflix Inc. from ABC, which was expected to be a blow to the network. "Forming a partnership with a writer/producer/director as talented and prolific as Carlton Cuse is a major victory for ABC Studios," president of ABC Studios Patrick Moran said in a statement. The Hollywood Reported wrote that the deal is said to be a worth more than $20 million, plus a percentage of the back-end on programming created under the partnership. Cuse spent six years at ABC with "Lost" and has since created shows such as "Bates Motel" and "The Strain." His current show "The Colony" was recently renewed for a second season on USA, and he also wrote the screenplay for "San Andreas," starring Dwayne Johnson. This new partnership comes as Disney gears up to launch its own stand alone streaming service to house its content by 2019. "I am very excited to be working alongside wonderful and iconic Disney brands like Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm to create and bring entertaining and compelling stories to the screen." Cuse said in a statement. "The very best part of my job is working with other writers to come up with cool ideas, solve story problems and get stories made."
