Sarah Chalke Signs Development Deal With 20th Century Fox Television

9 August 2011 1:20 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Actress Sarah Chalke has signed a development/talent holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television. Under the pact, the studio will develop a half-hour comedy project for her targeted for fall 2012. 20th TV first got in business with Chalke when she recurred on the studio's CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother from 2008-09 and then cast her as a lead in Greg Malins' 2010 ABC pilot Freshmen. After the pilot didn't make the cut to series in May 2010, the studio wanted to sign Chalke in a deal right away, but she was cast in CBS' midseason comedy series Mad Love, so 20th TV brass were "determined to get her this year," studio's chairman Gary Newman said. "She is incredibly talented as a comic force -- she can do physical comedy and has great timing. There is almost a Lucy quality to her," he said, referring to comedy icon Lucille Ball. »
