The creatively acclaimed and award winning writer/producer team Robert and Michelle King have signed a new five-year overall producing deal with CBS Studios under their King Size Productions banner. As part of the agreement, CBS will have exclusive rights to produce content created by the Kings across all platforms. Liz Glotzer continues to serve as president of King Size Productions.
The Kings are among the premiere storytellers in television with inventive and compelling shows that have become signature series for broadcast, cable, pay cable and streaming platforms. In their new deal, they will continue to guide the highly successful THE GOOD FIGHT and EVIL for Paramount+ and THE BITE for Spectrum. The pair co-created and serve as showrunners and executive producers for all three series. They also executive produced the SHOWTIME limited series YOUR HONOR starring Bryan Cranston.
“Robert and Michelle represent an elite class of producers who consistently deliver intelligent, provocative and acclaimed series across all platforms,” said George Cheeks, President and CEO of CBS. “Their stories are brilliant, the characters are memorable and the productions always have a sharp, premium visual style. The King’s contributions to CBS are significant and this ongoing partnership is a major source of pride for our company.”
“Michelle and Robert have been integral to our success as a studio for more than a decade. We are continually bowled over by their ability to invent new forms of storytelling and their uncanny knack of being prescient and relatable while holding a mirror up to culture,” said David Stapf, President of CBS Studios. “Their series have all been landmark, genre-busting shows, widely recognized among television’s best. They are simply extraordinary, and we are so proud and honored to be continuing our partnership.”
