The second noteworthy TV development deal announced today; the first was between producer Debra Martin Chase and ABC Studios (read that post HERE).

The second comes courtesy of Blair Underwood, who has signed what Deadline calls "a major development/talent holding deal" with NBC/Universal TV.

Included in this agreement will be a starring vehicle for Underwood, developed by Universal, as well as a line item that would see Blair cast in another project, if the one Universal develops for him, which Deadline says is a priority, fails to fly.

Blair's last tango with NBC didn't end very well; the network canceled the sci-fi drama The Event last year - after its first and only season. In it Blair Underwood played the president of the USA. 

Lately, Mr Underwood's been on Broadway, starring in the multi-culti cast revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. It ended its run on Broadway earlier this year, but will head to London for a West End run, which Blair will reprise his role in.

He also starred in the Neema Barnette-directed, TD Jakes-produced Woman Thou Art Loosed!: On The Seventh Day.

You can also find the Blair Underwood Collection of designer suits at the K & G fashion superstore chain.
