Blair Underwood Signs Major Development/Talent Deal w/ NBC/Universal TV

Blair Underwood Signs Major Development/Talent Deal w/ NBC/Universal TV

The second noteworthy TV development deal announced today; the first was between producer Debra Martin Chase and ABC Studios (read that post HERE).

The second comes courtesy of Blair Underwood, who has signed what Deadline callsa major development/talent holding deal” with NBC/Universal TV.

Included in this agreement will be a starring vehicle for Underwood, developed by Universal, as well as a line item that would see Blair cast in another project, if the one Universal develops for him, which Deadline says is a priority, fails to fly.

Blair’s last tango with NBC didn’t end very well; the network canceled the sci-fi drama The Event last year – after its first and only season. In it Blair Underwood played the president of the USA. 

Lately, Mr Underwood’s been on Broadway, starring in the multi-culti cast revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. It ended its run on Broadway earlier this year, but will head to London for a West End run, which Blair will reprise his role in.

He also starred in the Neema Barnette-directed, TD Jakes-produced Woman Thou Art Loosed!: On The Seventh Day.

You can also find the Blair Underwood Collection of designer suits at the K & G fashion superstore chain.
