'Earl' scribes ink with 20th TV

27 May 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Writer-producers John Hoberg and Kat Likkel have signed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Under the seven-figure pact, the writing duo will continue on the studio-produced comedy My Name Is Earl, where they will be elevated to co-exec producers next season, and will take crack at developing their own shows.

"'Earl' is one of the most distinctive comedies on the air, and Kat and John have been a big part of its success from the beginning," 20th TV chairman Dana Walden said. "They're incredibly talented and they bring their own quirky, offbeat sensibility to everything they write."

Hoberg and Likkel, who are married, became a writing team in 2003, shortly before they landed their first job together on ABC's Hope & Faith.

In the spring of 2005, looking for their next gig, they read all network pilots and immediately responded to Earl. Hoberg and Likkel loved the script so much, they turned down several jobs hoping and praying that they would get on Earl.

"It could've been the worst or the best decision we've even made," Hoberg said. »
