Starz pacts with Knoller

US premium cable network Starz has signed a two-year overall deal with producer David Knoller.



Under the terms of the pact, Knoller will become an executive producer on development series Blackbirds, and join Power, which was recently renewed for a second season.

He will also continue to develop original programming for Starz.

Based on the novels by Chuck Wendig, Blackbirds is about Miriam Black, a hitchhiker who struggles with a unique ability to see how and when you die when she touches you. Knoller is executive producing with John Shiban under his Knollwood Productions banner with Ian Williams.

Knoller’s credits include Big Love and Carnivale for HBO.
