Mazzara Inks Overall Deal With Fox TV Studios
Former 'Walking Dead' showrunner will develop projects under 44 Strong Productions banner

The agreement will see Mazzara develop cable projects for the studio under his new banner, 44 Strong Productions. He had previously spent six seasons working on FX's The Shield, which was produced by Fox TV Studios.
Mazzara is more recently known for serving as showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead for seasons two and three (he was a writer under Frank Darabont for season one). He departed the cable series in December when it was renewed for a fourth season, replaced by Scott Gimple.
"The Shield was the show that really put FTVS on the map, and Glen was a huge part of that show's success. Years later, Glen has become a lauded and expert showrunner, and after his extraordinary stint on The Walking Dead, we are proud to bring Glen back home," said FTVS president David Madden. "Like all television studios, we're writer-oriented, but since we're leaner than most, the people we're in business with need to possess a profound level of fierceness and obsession, and Glen eminently qualifies. Closing this deal is a testament to our admiration for Glen, who is already brewing a concoction of ideas and stories that we are eager to serve to the world."
