Jennifer Garner has sealed a first-look production deal with ABC Studios, reports Variety. She starred for five seasons on ABC’s “Alias” as Sydney Bristow.
The deal covers her Vandalia Films production company, which is looking to get into the TV business. Garner runs Vandalia with Juliana Janes; the duo has a first-look pact with Warner Bros. for feature films.
The duo said they hope to bring feature writers to the TV side and also work with writers they had met during Garner’s stints on “Alias” and “Felicity.”
Garner and Janes said they’re looking toward developing female-driven material such as “Grey’s Anatomy.”
“(ABC Entertainment topper) Steve McPherson and I have a great relationship and have been talking about doing something together for some time now. It’s been over three years since the finale of ‘Alias,’ ” Garner said, adding that she was looking forward “to have the opportunity to get back into television wearing my producer hat.”
