Under the two-year pact — which includes an option for a third year — the writing team will develop original projects for the studio and board an ABC series.

The sought-after pair rose through the ranks after starting as staff writers on ABC’s short-lived comedy Two Guys and a Girl, co-producing the former WB Network’s What I Like About You, serving as supervising producers on ABC Family’s Greek and co-exec producing ABC’s Mr. Sunshine and Fox’s Breaking In.

At the studio, they join Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage‘s Fake Empire, Cold Case‘s Mark Pellington, duo Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins, The Office‘s Daniel Chun and Mark Gordon, among others.

ABC canceled the critically praised but ratings challenged sophomore comedy Apartment 23 earlier this season.
