Disney’s 20th Television and ABC Signature have signed a new, multi-year overall deal with Warren Littlefield.

The Littlefield Company originally signed a deal with Fox 21 and 20th Television in 2016, but this new deal will mean the company is exclusive to Disney until 2026.

Warren Littlefield has created a number of series for Hulu and FX including, “Dopesick”, “The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Fargo” and the upcoming series, “The Old Man”.

In a statement to Deadline, 20th TV President Karey Burke said:

“Warren is more than just a gifted producer, he’s a giant in television, and I say that as someone who had the good fortune to start my career under him at NBC. Being able to work side by side with him again has been one of the great privileges of joining 20th, and his contributions to Dopesick and The Old Man have been extraordinary. He’s one of those guys where you truly believe that despite his incredible track record, his best work is still ahead of him.”

ABC Signature president Jonnie Davis also said:

“We are huge fans of Warren’s creative vision, spectacular taste, and his ability to elevate every project, and we jumped at the chance to partner with 20th on a new deal for this visionary producer.  We look forward to many projects together in the years ahead.”

Warren Littlefield added:

I’m grateful to Dana Walden for her leadership and her belief that we’ve only just begun our journey together. Both Karey Burke and Jonnie Davis and their outstanding teams give us the support we need to succeed. With my producing partners Ann Johnson, Lisa Harrison and Graham Littlefield along with Vivien Mao, Alice Losk and Patty Mann, we look forward to delivering more of our brand of high quality complex adult entertainment like The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo, Dopesick and The Old Man.”

He added:

“We’re also excited to expand what we stand for in several significant ways. We think the international marketplace represents a growth opportunity and our development slate reflects that. In addition, we’re adding an Unscripted executive to our team as we embrace the full range of opportunities that content offers. We look forward to delivering more content across more Disney owned platforms. Our collective quest at the company is to find and work with artists with vision, then to help them architect that into outstanding content by protecting their vision. That fuels us. I’ve spent my entire career focused on the development and production of television entertainment. Looking back I have a lot of satisfaction with the choices I’ve made but couldn’t be more excited by the road ahead.”
