Larry Wilmore’s Next Move Is An Overall Deal With ABC Studios

larry-wilmore-abc-dealsLarry Wilmore is continuing to make his moves- the comedian has signed a huge deal with ABC Studios that will keep him busy for the next few years.

The former Nightly Show host is responsible for his fair share of TV hits, including co-creating the new HBO series Insecure and previously creating The Bernie Mac Show. He also previously served as executive producer for ABC’s hit show Black-ish and now, he’s preparing to take his talents back to the network. Wilmore signed a multi-year overall deal with ABC Studios, under which he’ll “develop his own series and supervise other creators”, according to Deadline.

“I’m excited beyond words to be back at ABC and look forward to this creative partnership,” Wilmore said in a statement. “Disney took a chance on me as a young writer years ago, and so I’m thrilled to return to the Mouse House. I hope my room still looks the same.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Larry Wilmore back to ABC Studios,” said ABC Studios president Patrick Moran. “We worked closely with Larry while we were developing Black-ish and are looking forward to what’s coming next from this incredibly talented writer/producer.”

There are no current plans for Wilmore to return to Black-ish at the moment, but it sounds like if the show’s creator Kenya Barris’ new series gets picked up, those plans could change.
