Jenna Elfman has officially signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
According to Deadline, Elfman has signed a development and talent holding deal with the network.
Under the contract, Elfman and a writer will be paired together by the studio to develop a project, comedy or drama, for her to produce and star in. Elfman has reportedly already started meeting with potential writers.
Elfman returning to 20th Century Fox TV is a major deal, considering she got her big break there with her comedy series Dharma and Greg. She also starred in the studio’s show 1600 Penn as the first lady.
20thCentury Fox VP of casting Sharon Klein said that they are excited to have Elfman back and described her as brilliant.

“She is both a brilliant comedic leading lady and a stunning dramatic actress; she quite frankly can do everything,” Sharon Klein said in a recent press release. “Audiences love her and so do we, as our relationship spans from Dharma all the way to 1600 Penn. We could not be more excited to be back in business developing something just for her.”
Elfman, who is represented by WME, Brillstein Entertainment and attorneys PJ Shapiro and Matt Johnson, recently completed production on her most recent project Big Stone Gap based on a novel by the same name. She co-starred in the film alongside Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg.
