LOS ANGELES ( – Producer-director David Nutter, who most recently helmed the two-hour pilot of the upcoming FOX series “Dark Angel,” has signed a one-year development deal with Warner Bros. Television, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the deal, Nutter will develop, produce and direct a TV series for the production studio. The deal also reunites Nutter with friend Peter Roth, Warner Bros. TV’s president. The two worked together during Roth’s tenure at 20th Century Fox.

Nutter executive produced the series “Roswell” for The WB along with partner Jason Katims.
