Kurtzman & Orci’s K/O Paper Products Moves To CBS TV Studios

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci‘s production company K/O Paper Products have inked a three-year overall deal with CBS TV Studios. The agreement to develop TV projects for the studio ends K/O’s partnership with its previous home base 20th Century Fox TV, where it has resided since 2010 in a pod deal. Among the current projects for Kurtzman and Orci is 20th TV’s Sleepy Hollow, which they wrote and Fox acquired — it will premiere in the fall with Len Wiseman directing the pilot and executive producing. (K/O’s first major projects, Locke & Key and Exit Strategy, also went to Fox and got to the pilot stage.) Kurtzman and Orci previously co-penned Fox’s Fringe with JJ Abrams, a series that ended its five-year run last season. The pair also co-wrote and developed CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 reboot, which started their relationship with CBS. Also on the pair’s TV slate is The Hub’s animated series Transformers: Prime. That stems from the duo’s work on the Transformers film franchise; their other extensive film credits include the two Star Trek movies, Eagle Eye, Cowboys & Aliens and Mission: Impossible III, and they executive produced the romantic comedy The Proposal. They also co-wrote and produced People Like Us for Disney, marking Kurtzman’s feature directorial debut. (more…)
