Temple Hill, which just hired former Xbox Entertainment Studios exec Albert Page as head of its TV division, has closed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV Studios. Now the team of Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey and Page will develop new projects for the studio via their shingle, which on the TV side they most recently teamed with 20th TV to produce Fox’s drama pilot Rosewood, which was picked up to series and will premiere in the fall.
“Marty and Wyck are incredibly talented producers, with a history of identifying great storytelling and talent,” said Jonnie Davis, 20th TV’s president of creative affairs. “We’re thrilled to bring their passion for undeniable television to the studio. Their laser focus and ability to break through the clutter in such a crowded marketplace makes this a perfect partnership.”
Before this deal, Temple Hill was set up under an overall at ABC Studios, where they produced Revenge for four seasons. The outfit is also teaming with Sonar Entertainment to produce Mr. Mercedes, a series based on the Stephen King novel, with David E. Kelley writing and Jack Bender directing. On the film side, Temple Hill produced the Twilight movies, The Maze Runner films and The Fault In Our Stars, among others.
“Wyck and I are excited to expand our television business with Dana, Gary, Jonnie and everyone at Fox,” Bowen and Godfrey said in a statement. “With the addition of Albert to our team, we are confident that we can take our TV business to the next level.”
Before Xbox, Page was SVP Development and Production for Mandeville Films and Television, where he helped develop The Proposal and The Fighter.
Temple Hill is repped by UTA and attorney Ken Richman.
