Coming off a five-season stint on AMC’s Hell On Wheels, writer-producer Jami O’Brien has signed a two-year-overall deal with the network.
Under the pact, she’ll join the writing staff of AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead as a co-executive producer. She also will write and executive produce NOS4A2, a supernatural horror series based on the bestselling novel by Joe Hill, which is in development at AMC with Michael Eisner’s Tornante TV producing.
O’Brien worked on Hell On Wheels for all five seasons, starting as an executive story editor and rising to a co-executive producer on the recently-concluded series. Her other TV credits include Big Love, Flesh & Bone and Da Vinci’s Demons.
O’Brien is repped by UTA and the Shuman Company.
