Variety is reporting that Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have signed a three-year deal to develop new shows for 20th Century Fox starting this March. The deal means that Orci and Kurtzman will create projects, supply the network with show ideas and recruit writers, along with likely continuing their work as consulting producers on Fox’s successful sci-fi show Fringe. Kurtzman and Orci wrote two of last summer’s biggest hits, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the fucking awesome Star Trek. They also have several projects in the works on other networks, including CBS’s upcoming Hawaii Five-O reboot and a cartoon series of Transformers for the Hub.
The deal with Fox not only aligns the duo with a single network, but also continues their streak as two of Hollywood’s most successful and talented producers. They began their careers with the animated Hercules series and went on to produce Alias before moving on to feature films such as Mission Impossible III, The Legend of Zorro, and the Transformers films, among others. Orci and Kurtzman’s upcoming projects on the big screen are Cowboys and Aliens, The 28th Amendment, and Paramount’s Star Trek sequel.
