WEEDS writer/producer MATTHEW SALSBERG has landed a seven-figure deal with Lionsgate studios, tying him to the company for the next two years.
Salsberg signed a production and development contract with the studio's TV division, which will see him promoted to executive producer for season six of the hit drama, starring Mary-Louise Parker.
He will also pen a number of other comedy projects for Lionsgate, reports Variety.com.
And Salsberg - who has also written scripts for Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm - is delighted to be given the opportunity to take Weeds to another level, describing the programme as "the most enjoyable and rewarding experience of my career".
The exact figure of the deal has not been disclosed.
A sleekly made thriller with a sparky sense of humour, this is also a rare action movie that has something important to say.
