Former Nikita co-executive producer Albert Kim has signed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV. The pact, which has an option for a third year, marks Kim’s first overall deal. Under the agreement, Kim will work on 20th TV’s upcoming Fox adventure series Hieroglyph and will later join the second season of the studio’s breakout Fox drama Sleepy Hollow as a co-executive producer. He also will develop. “This was highly sought after,” said 20th president of creative affairs Johnny Davis of the deal. “We build shows around a voice, and Albert has a very specific voice; his writing is compelling and an adrenaline rush.”
Kim, who developed a legal thriller pilot at the CW this season, spent four seasons on the CW/WBTV spy drama Nikita, writing/co-writing a number of key episodes, including the series finale. Kim, who began his career as a journalist for Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, and People, also worked on TNT’s Leverage and FX’s Dirt. He is repped by ICM Partners.
