Gordon's shingle, Teakwood Lane, has also hired Hugh Fitzpatrick as head of television for the company, who will manage Teakwood's development and assist Gordon in identifying writers.
"This new deal affords Howard the full resources of this studio as he expands beyond simply developing projects of his own but also identifying and supervising other writers with great ideas," said 20th TV chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden in a statement. "We think Teakwood Lane has the potential to be a powerhouse supplier of distinctive television series and are thrilled to house it here at Twentieth."
The multiyear deal keeps Gordon at the studio where he has spent nearly his entire career, including working on The X-Files and serving as showrunner of 24 for most of its eight-season run.
