The Goldbergs‘ executive producer Chris Bishop has signed a two-year overall deal with Sony TV, the studio behind the popular ABC comedy series.
Under the pact, Bishop will continue to serve as an executive producer on the The Goldbergs alongside creator/showrunner Adam F. Goldberg. He also will develop new projects with Doug Robinson of Happy Madison, which co-produces The Goldbergs with Sony TV. Before joining The Goldbergs after the pilot as supervising producer, Bishop worked on Sony TV/Happy Madison’s Fox comedy series Breaking In, which Goldberg co-created.
The 1980s-set single-camera comedy series, which is heading for Season 4 in the fall, centers on middle-schooler Adam who, armed with a video camera, captures the antics of his nutty but loving family. It is one of very few series to show year-over-year growth in all of its three seasons to date. Sony TV recently sold the series to Tribune Broadcasting’s stations in 16 major markets. It will debut in broadcast syndication in fall 2017.
Bishop’s previous TV writing/producing credits also include Fox’s Oliver Beene, and CBS’ Still Standing. He is repped by WME, 3 Arts and Hansen Jacobsen.
