FlashForward co-executive producer Lisa Zwerling has inked an overall deal with Universal Media Studios. Under the two-year pact, she will develop new projects for the studio while also working on existing series. She has already joined the high-profile new NBC/UMS drama series The Event as a consulting producer.

“Lisa is a breath of fresh air – so smart and passionate,” NBC/UMS’ EVP drama Laura Lancaster said. “We’re impressed with her creative range and feel so fortunate she’s decided to make UMS her home.”

Before her stint on ABC’s FlashForward, Zwerling spent six seasons on NBC’s ER, rising to co-executive producer.
