Gay TV creator
Aaron Harberts and his writing-producing partner, Gretchen
Berg, have signed a three-year overall deal with 20th
Century Fox Television. Their latest show, Pepper
Dennis, recently premiered on the WB and is
awaiting news regarding pickup by the CW, the network
that will combine the WB and UPN. The new deal for the
duo—who wrote the feature film Valentine and
wrote for such TV series as Wonderfalls, North
Shore, and John Doe—will have them
developing new projects for 20th TV. "When we find people we
want to work with, we try to stick with them,"
Harberts told The Hollywood Reporter. "They've been
very supportive, and they treat us right. They are
wonderful nurturers and protectors." (The
