Writer Aadrita Mukerji has struck an overall deal with Universal Television, Deadline has reported. The Indian American will write, develop and produce projects across all platforms for the USG studio.
As part of the pact, Mukerji has already signed up to her first, according to the Deadline report. She will join NBC’s reboot of “Quantum Leap” as a co-executive producer. The series premieres on NBC on Sept. 19 and is a reboot of the classic 1990s sci-fi drama, starring Raymond Lee. It takes place 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished.
“I am thrilled and honored to join the Universal Television family,” said Mukerji. “I count myself lucky to have found a creative home with such a talented, dedicated, and supportive team, and I look forward to the stories we’ll tell together.”
Originally from Kolkata, she started her career as a writer on the CBS television series “Scorpion,” and later became the executive story editor of “Supergirl.” She recently worked as a supervising producer on Universal Television’s “The Endgame” for NBC and a producer on Amazon’s “Reacher.” She has also developed with Skydance Media and CBS.
