Kevin Connolly has signed a new overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV. He will develop new projects, alongside 3Arts, for network and cable. This marks Connolly ‘s second consecutive pact at the studio. The Entourage alum most recently starred on 20th TV’s CBS comedy series Friends With Better Lives.“We got to know Kevin well during Friends With Better Lives, and were blown away by his energy and passion for the creative process,” said 20th TV President of Creative Affairs Jonnie Davis. “He’s bursting with ideas and has great taste in material and a keen awareness of what makes for a great television show. And he obviously brings invaluable experience in front of and behind the camera, both as an actor and a director.”
