EXCLUSIVE: Emmy-winning comedy writer-producer Tucker Cawley has signed a two-year overall deal with Universal Television. Under the pact, the Everybody Loves Raymond alum will serve as executive producer/showrunner on the studio’s NBC comedy series Up All Night, which was renewed for a second season with a 13-episode order. Cawley was most recently co-executive producer on the first season of the series, created/executive produced by Emily Spivey and starring Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.

His series credits also include TNT’s Men Of a Certain Age and NBC’s Parks & Recreation.
