Alan Yang Inks Overall Deal With Warner Bros. Television Group

EXCLUSIVE: After a long run at NBCUniversal, writer, producer and director Alan Yang has signed a big overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group. Under the multi-year pact, he will develop and produce new TV projects exclusively for the studio.

Yang had been at NBCU for his entire TV career to date, which spans more than two decades, starting with a job as a writer-producer on NBC’s Late Call With Carson Daly. He went on to work as a writer on NBC/Universal TV’s Parks and Recreation, rising to co-executive producer and making his directorial debut, and also wrote on NBC/Uni TV’s The Good Place.

At Universal TV, where Yang had been under overall deals for the past eight years, he co-created, executive produced and directed several series: Netflix’s Master Of None, for which he won an Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series Emmy Award alongside fellow co-creator Aziz Ansari, becoming the first Asian American recipient in the category; the WGA-nominated Forever for Prime Video and, most recently, the Maya Rudolph starrer Loot, which just wrapped its Season 2 run on Apple TV+. He also executive produced the studio’s BAFTA-nominated Apple TV+ anthology series Little America.

Yang has shared in three Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy nominations, two for Master Of None and one for Parks & Recreation. On the film side, he wrote, directed and produced Tigertail, an intergenerational Taiwanese-American family drama inspired by his own family’s story. Yang is repped by WME and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
