Before he joined forces with Shotz, Steinberg was creator of the Fox series “Human Target” and CBS’s “Jericho.” Shotz was a partner with director Jon Turteltaub at Junction Entertainment, where he developed and produced “Jericho” for CBS Television.
“We couldn’t be more grateful for the faith Peter, Dana, Craig and Bert have shown us, and excited about the prospects for what we’ll build together at Fox 21,” Steinberg said in a statement. “With so much changing in television, strong studio partners are critical– creatively, economically, and personally– and we can’t imagine any team we’d rather be a part of than this one.”
Added Bert Salke, president of Fox 21 Television Studios, “Jon is both an incredibly talented creator and a force of nature as a showrunner … Together with his producing partner Dan Shotz, we have every belief that he’ll be a major supplier to the Disney platforms and a big presence as a showrunner on our shows.”
