Universal Media Studios has signed a three-year first look development deal with Carousel Television, the broadcast and new technologies arm of Steve Carell's recently formed Carousel Productions.
Heading up the division for Carell will be Thom Hinkle (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and Campbell Smith.
"I could not be more excited to be entering into this partnership with NBC/Universal," said Carell. "Thom and Campbell are smart, funny and creative. And they also smell great."
