SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Skydance Television today announced it has entered into an exclusive multi-year overall agreement with writer-producer Nick Santora (Scorpion, Prison Break). Under the deal, Santora will create, develop and produce event-level original scripted series for the studio.

"Nick has impeccable taste and an amazing facility for all aspects of creating and producing television," said Bill Bost, President, Skydance Television. "He is masterful at telling sophisticated stories for a global audience and we are beyond excited to continue collaborating with him."

"It's been an honor to step into the world Lee Child created with Jack Reacher and I'm thrilled to expand my partnership with Skydance," said Santora. "David, Dana and Bill share my desire to tell larger than life stories with remarkable characters and I look forward to working together with the entire Skydance creative team to create compelling television series."

Nick Santora is a writer and producer best known for creating and serving as executive producer/showrunner on Scorpion as well as co-writing, creating, showrunning and executive producing Breakout Kings.

In addition to Jack Reacher, Santora is also currently an executive producer/showrunner on The Most Dangerous Game and The Fugitive (both for Quibi). He has written multiple novels including Fifteen Digits; the National Best Seller Slip & Fall and the children's book I Want an Alien For Christmas.

In addition to Santora, Skydance Television has overall deals with David S. Goyer, Alison Schapker, Lewaa Nasserdeen and Olivia Purnell.
