Maggie Mull, co-creator of Hulu’s upcoming comedy Maggie, has signed an overall deal at 20th Television, Deadline has learned. Under the new deal, Mull will continue as executive producer and writer on Maggie, as well as create new series and supervise other writers’ comedies, both live-action and animated, for all platforms for 20th TV, a part of Disney Television Studios.

“I feel so beyond lucky to have had my first writing job with 20th and it’s by no mistake that I’ve worked exclusively with them ever since,” said Mull. “To continue my creative relationship with them is a dream come true for me, as long as I don’t have to take a new ID photo.”
