Alyssa Milano has signed a a first-look production and writing deal with A+E Studios, president Barry Jossen said Thursday.
The actor, producer, host, activist, entrepreneur, humanitarian and New York Times best-selling author will write and produce projects for A+E Studios for sale on all global and domestic television platforms and services.
A+E Studios had acquired Milano’s pilot script “Things I’m Seeing Without You,” which she adapted based on the young adult novel by Peter Bognanni. “Things” tells the story of a teenage girl reconnecting with her estranged father following the death of her boyfriend.
“I am thrilled to be entering into this partnership with A+E Studios,” Milano said. “Having told stories as an actor and producer, it’s incredibly fulfilling to now expand my passion for writing as well as have a home for projects I am lucky enough to produce. A+E Studios has already been a wonderful partner and I’m excited for all that’s to come.”
“Alyssa Milano is a creative force-of-nature,” Jossen said. “She has already achieved so much in her life as a performer, activist, author, podcaster and more. Alyssa’s tireless energy and brilliant creative instincts are certain to bolster her current and emerging career as a top producer in television. She is also an inspired writer, having written her first script based on ‘Things I am Seeing Without You.’ Tana Jamieson and I, along with Kiel Elliot and Tom Lerner—Alyssa’s creative team at A+E Studios—are very excited to begin our work together in bringing Alyssa’s vision to the screen. We know she will be a huge success, and we are happy to be a part of it.”
