Exclusive: Ted co-writers writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild have signed with UTA. This comes as Fbc picked up their untitled pilot and moved it right to series, one of the few large commitments of the season. The writers had  been repped by Wme. The scribes co-wrote the Universal hit comedy with Seth MacFarlane, which grossed more than $500 million worldwide. The duo also scripted the Untitled Western that MacFarlane is set to direct and star in, this spring. They are also currently writing for the Academy Award telecast which MacFarlane is hosting. They are also expected to write the Ted sequel. Sulkin & Wild have been writer/producers on Family Guy since 2005, rising to Executive Producers, and the duo is currently under an overall deal at 20th Century Fox Television. Sulkin & Wild continue to be represented by attorney Ken Richman. »
