Former Star Trek: Voyager producer Bryan Fuller, who co-created FOX's recent short-lived but critically praised Wonderfalls, has signed a two-year deal with 20th Century Fox TV to develop new shows for the studio.
As described in The Hollywood Reporter, the contract might also put Fuller to work writing for FOX's current shows.
"Bryan has an incredibly fresh and unique voice for television," said 20th Century Fox television president Dana Walden, who called Fuller one of several people identified by the executives "who sort of defines what this studio is trying to do in terms of distinctive and groundbreaking television."
The deal will reportedly give Fuller a seven-figure salary and include an option for a third year.
Wonderfalls, which was acclaimed by critics, was cancelled by FOX after only four episodes and a move from Friday to Thursday night.
