Under the pact — Silber’s first overall agreement — he will continue on NOLA next season, working with executive producer/showrunner Brad Kern, while also developing new projects for the studio.
Silber, who started as a playwright, has been at CBS for more than a decade. The mothership NCIS series helped launch his TV writing career with a two-year stint from 2005-07. Silber went on to work on three other CBS drama procedurals — Cold Case, CSI: NY and Elementary — before returning to NCIS in 2013 as a co-executive producer and segueing to NCIS: New Orleans in 2015.
In addition to CBS, Silber has developed for NBC and FX. He is repped by UTA and Jamie Mandelbaum.
