Disney’s ABC Signature has extended its overall deals with the duo behind the new Freeform series, “Everything’s Trash”, Phoebe Robinson and Jonathan Groff.
Phoebe Robinson signed an overall deal with ABC Studios in 2019. She will continue to develop and produce projects for Disney’s platforms. In addition to “Everything’s Trash”, she is also developing a multi-camera sitcom called “Chopped & Screwed”, set in a barbershop and beauty salon, for ABC with “The Amber Ruffin Show” writer Dewayne Perkins.
“I’m so happy to continue my relaysh with ABC Signature, three years and counting, which is longer than some marriages. Hey-o!. In all seriousness, having their support in launching my new show, Everything’s Trash, has meant the world to me, and I cannot wait to birth other TV babies with the studio as my doula. Lol. What?”
Jonathan Groff has been working with the studio since 2009 and was an executive producer on “Black-ish” and also executive produced “Happy ending” and “This Fool”. He was also the head writer for five years on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”.
Jonnie Davis, president, ABC Signature said in a statement:
“It’s been a fantastic partnership with Phoebe and we are thrilled to extend it. We can’t wait for everyone to see her brilliance in full force in her new series, Everything’s Trash, on Freeform. Jon Groff has been a superstar on the studio team for more than a decade. He is the definition of a ‘go-to guy,’ and his work on eight seasons of Black-ish as well as our new comedy, Everything’s Trash, has been nothing short of stellar.”
