Under the pact, believed to be in the eight-figure range, Schulner will continue as executive producer/showrunner on New Amsterdam, now in its second season on NBC. He also will develop, write and executive produce programming targeting network, cable and streaming platforms for Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios.
Schulner has been under a string of overall deals with Universal TV since 2010.
“David is a versatile writer and showrunner who has proven himself adept in multiple genres,” said Universal TV President Pearlena Igbokwe: “His very clear vision and leadership has been critical to the breakout success of ‘New Amsterdam’ around the world. I’m grateful that we get to continue this decade-long relationship.
