    Bruckheimer Stays on With Warner Bros.

    Bruckheimer Stays on With Warner Bros.

    LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Jerry Bruckheimer is still a relative neophyte in television terms, but he's got a few more years to strengthen his reputation, thanks to a new four-year exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television. Bruckheimer is now linked to WBTV through June 2007.

    From "Top Gun" and "Beverly Hills Cop" in the '80s through "The Rock" and "Armageddon" to 21st century blockbusters like "Coyote Ugly" and "Kangaroo Jack," Bruckheimer has assembled a long list of theatrical hits.

    On television, Bruckheimer's early efforts included "Soldier of Fortune, Inc." but his first major success was "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." The top rated regular series for 2002-03, "CSI" has spawned a popular spin-off, "CSI: Miami" and was used to set up Bruckheimer's latest hit, "Without a Trace." Bruckheimer Television has several pilots in production for next season including a drama about cold case detectives for CBS and the Rachel Leigh Cook pilot "Fearless" for The WB.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, financial terms weren't released, but the new deal will provide Bruckheimer TV with multi-million dollar overhead and a hefty chunk of backend profits if the developed shows go into syndication.

    Bruckheimer and Bruckheimer TV President Jonathan Littman first signed on with WBTV in 2001 and while that deal still has a year to go, both parties agreed to renegotiate to achieve something more long-term.

    "We couldn't be more proud or more excited to be in business for the long term with this company," says Peter Roth, president of WBTV. "They are really just that good. They're hungry for success and they work hard."

    I read a review about "fearless" and it said that it was trying to be like Alias with a shoestrige budget with bad acting.

    Well, it's the WB, I'm not surprised. Their budget isn't quite in the same ballpark as CBS.
