Vali Chandrasekaran (30 Rock) has inked a two-year overall deal with ABC Studios. The pact comes on the heels of Chandrasekaran taking his first crack at development this past season when he sold two half-hour, single-camera pitches — one to ABC through Warner Bros TV and one to Fox through 20th/Chernin. For the past three years, Chandrasekaran was a supervising producer on NBC’s 30 Rock, which ended its run in January. Before that, he spent three years on NBC’s My Name Is Earl, where he worked his way up the ranks to co-producer. On the feature side, Chandrasekaran, repped by UTA and Management 360, wrote the screenplay for the indie Meth Kings with John Riggi set to direct.
