She served as the showrunner of the critically acclaimed The Carmichael Show with Jerrod Carmichael for all three seasons, and also worked as a co-executive producer on New Girl. This is her second overall deal with 20th TV.
“Danielle is a superstar; she’s hilarious, brilliant, creative and can run a show like nobody’s business,” said Jonnie Davis, President of Creative Affairs, 20th Century Fox TV. “Her collaboration with Jerrod on Carmichael was spectacular, but just the beginning for her, and locking her in to an exclusive deal here was a big priority for Howard [Kurtzman, President of Business Operations, 20th Century FoxTV] and me. She’s a huge talent.”
