Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson has signed an exclusive overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
According to Deadline, it’s a multiyear agreement. Brunson will create and produce original programming for Warner Bros. Television Group’s various platforms. The financial details were not revealed.
Brunson said in a statement, “I’m excited to expand my long-running creative partnership with Warner Bros. With Abbott as our anchor, I look forward to what we’ll create next.”
Warner Bros. Television Group Chairman Channing Dungey also added, “Quinta Brunson is a tour de force and a powerhouse talent, and we are beyond thrilled to be continuing our partnership with her through this new overall deal. What Quinta and her Abbott Elementary team have achieved in the first season is just extraordinary. We cannot wait for season two, and to explore many future projects with her in the coming years. I’m so grateful that Quinta is part of our WBTV family, and I look forward to many more years of successful collaboration.”
Last month, Abbott Elementary received Emmy nominations for Best Comedy Series with Quinta Brunson up for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Tyler James Williams for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, and Janelle James and Sheryl Lee Ralph both up for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Brunson is the first Black woman to become a three-time Emmy nominee in the comedy categories.
Abbott Elementary returns for season two on Sept. 21.
