Writer-producer Aaron Rahsaan Thomas has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. The two-year pact stems from Thomas’ recent stint as a writer on the studio’s Baz Luhrmann period hip-hop drama series for Netflix The Get Down.

This marks the first overall deal for Thomas, whose previous series credits include Southland, CSI: New York and Friday Night Lights.

Thomas is repped by UTA and Morris Yorn.
