TV writer Robia Rashid has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. This marks the first overall pact for Rashid, who spent the last four seasons on CBS/20th TV’s hit comedy How I Met Your Mother, rising to supervising producer. Writing is a second career for Rashid who spent six years working for a non-profit organization, mentoring inner city kids and helping them get college scholarships. She then took a writing class at NYU taught by Cindy Chupack who was coming off her stint on HBO’s Sex And The City. The class gave Rashid a career and a mentor. Chupack took her under her wing and helped her land her first writing gig on Will & Grace. Rashid also has worked on The Loop and Aliens In America and sold a comedy pitch to CBS earlier this season. She is with ICM Partners and attorney Robert Offer.
