Warner Bros. Television Group Signs Overall Deal With Emmy Award Winner Cord Jefferson ("Watchmen")

Warner Bros. Television Group has signed an exclusive multi-year overall deal with acclaimed Emmy-winning writer/producer Cord Jefferson ("Watchmen"). The agreement with WBTVG marks Jefferson's first studio overall pact. Per Studio practice, terms were not disclosed.

The agreement continues Jefferson's relationship with WBTVG and WarnerMedia, as he most recently was an executive story editor and writer for the landmark Emmy-winning HBO limited series "Watchmen," produced by Warner Bros. Television.

Under terms of the deal, Jefferson will create, develop and produce original programming to be produced by the Studio, including drama series, comedies, longform, and unscripted projects for all platforms. This includes projects for HBO Max, HBO and other WarnerMedia-affiliated outlets, as well as external streaming services, premium and basic cable channels, and the five broadcast networks.

Under this pact, Jefferson plans to create thoughtful character dramas and comedies, as well as affecting unscripted projects, a callback to his roots as a journalist.

Jefferson co-wrote (with Damon Lindelof) the critically beloved "This Extraordinary Being" episode of "Watchmen" and went on to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special. Jefferson was also nominated for the USC Scripter Award for Television and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series for the episode. And as part of the "Watchmen" series writing team, he won the Writers Guild Award for Best New Series and was nominated for Best Drama Series.

In addition to "Watchmen," Jefferson's writing credits include HBO's "Succession," NBC's "The Good Place" and Netflix's "Master of None." He won the Writers Guild Award in 2020 for Best Drama Series as part of the "Succession" writing team, and was previously nominated for the Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy Series as part of the team for "The Good Place" in 2019 and "Master of None" in 2018. For his "Tinker, Tailor, Demon, Spy" episode of "The Good Place," he won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series.

Jefferson is represented by 3 Arts Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham
