Under the pact, the duo have sold a drama project to NBC with NBCUniversal-based Chernin Entertainment and writer/playwright Evan Twohy. The concept is being kept under wraps. The two also will serve as co-executive producers on the new NBC/Uni TV drama series Midnight, Texas, set for a midseason premiere.
Charmelo and Snyder previously worked with Uni TV and the studio’s new president Pearlena Igbokwe during the 2012-season when they wrote a New Orleans gothic thriller for NBC.
“I worked with Eric and Nicole during my first year as head of Drama for NBC and I was impressed with their ability to write compelling and emotionally resonant stories,” said Igbokwe. “I am pleased to welcome them to the Universal Television family and look forward to seeing what new and exciting projects they will bring to the studio.”
Charmelo and Snyder created and executive produced drama series Ringer for CBS/The CW starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. They also co-executive produced and wrote for The CW’s Supernatural.
Charmelo and Snyder are repped by UTA, the Shuman Company and attorney Jamie Mandelbaum.
