The new pact will see Messer “create original dramas for ABC Studios and continue to serve as showrunner for the long-running procedural crime drama via her production banner, Erica Messer Productions.
Messer started the production company with friend and former co-worker Deborah Cincotta and development exec Sullivan Fitzgerald (“State of Affairs”). Cincotta is Erica Messer Productions’ president of development and Fitzgerald serves as development associate.
“Together, their goal is to build a TV company known for its collaborative and empowering relationship with artists,” THR summarizes. “The production company is currently focused on spearheading network projects with both new and veteran writers for the 2018–19 development season.”
Messer has been running “Criminal Minds” for seven years and is the longest-serving writer on the CBS procedural.

The series aired for two seasons and ended earlier this year. “Charmed,” “Alias,” and “The O.C.” are among Messer’s previous credits.
