Aussie ex-pat director Phillip Noyce has signed a first look deal between his production company Rumbalara Films Inc. and 20th Century Fox Television.
Noyce, whose Aussie productions have included Dead Calm, Newsfront, Heatwave, The Dismissal and The Cowra Breakout, has also helmed Roots, Revenge, Tru Calling and upcoming US medical drama, The Resident starring Emily VanCamp and Matt Czuchry.
“Phillip has been one of our most trusted pilot directors for more than a decade, and this year he directed both the brilliant pilot of our midseason series The Resident as well as its second episode. He brings out the best in his actors and his crew, and he always elevates strong material into undeniable television,” 20th TV president of creative affairs Jonnie Davis said. “We’re happy to have the first look at any project he and Kimberly put together, as well as continue to utilize his services on The Resident as an executive producer.”
