Variety reports that Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis who wrote last night’s Lost episode “Tricia Tanaka is Dead” have signed a overall deal with with Lost production company ABC Television Studio (formerly Touchstone Television) through 2010:
“Lost” co-exec producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have inked a mid-seven figure overall deal that will keep them on the ABC Television Studio island through 2010.
Three-year pact calls for the scribes to continue on “Lost,” rising to exec producers by the second year of the deal. They’ll also create and develop new projects for the studio.
I’m really happy for Adam and Edward since they have proven to be great writers with a nice sense of humor. The fact that they have signed a deal through 2010 worried me a bit at first, since I’m not sure that Lost could maintain the high quality if stretched out to 6 or 7 seasons. However, after having a closer look, the deal could just mean that they will be working for ABC television, and not necessarily on Lost until 2010.
We’ll see what happens. Either way, I’m happy for Adam and Ed!
