Awwwww yeah. Some cool TV news... You've loved him on Lost and Hawaii Five-0, now get ready for DDK the producer. News broke last week that Daniel Dae Kim has struck a two-year first-look development deal with CBS TV Studios: Daniel Dae Kim Inks Overall Deal With CBS Television Studios.
Under his company, 3AD, Daniel will develop and produce projects for network and cable. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel is currently in the process of hiring a development executive to oversee the newly launched banner. Wouldn't it be cool to see some qualified Asian folks in the running for the job?
Come to think of it, I can't recall another Asian American actor who's gotten a TV development deal like this. Is DDK the first?
Under the pact, the Lost alum will develop new projects for CBSTVS under his 3AD production banner. He'll serve as a producer on all network and cable projects he develops for the studio and is currently searching for a development executive to oversee the newly launched banner.
"I'm excited to be expanding my relationship with David Stapf and CBS Television Studios. Creating original content has been a longstanding goal and I look forward to our future collaborations as a producer with 3AD," Kim said.
