Drama writer Michael Seitzman is staying at ABC Studios with a new two-year overall deal. Under the seven-figure pact, he will continue to develop for the studio. Two shows he developed at ABC Studios during the 2008-09 season, Empire State and House Rules, were picked up to pilot by ABC and CBS, respectively. This development season, he wrote an adaptation of the hit British series Spooks aka MI-5 for ABC and ABC Studios outside of his overall deal with the studio. On the feature side, the WME-repped Seitzman penned the 2005 film North Country.
