EXCLUSIVE: Curb Your Enthusiasm co-star Cheryl Hines has signed a talent holding deal with ABC. Once the norm, such pacts are rare these days, with maybe a handful across all broadcast networks a season. Hines already has a history at ABC. She starred in the network’s short-lived comedy series In the Motherhood last year and recently did an arc on Brothers & Sisters and co-starred in the network’s comedy pilot Wright vs. Wrong. Under her talent deal with ABC she might reprise her role in the new pilot for the Sony TV-produced project starring Debra Messing, which is in the works. Hines, who also is set to reprise her role as Larry David’s wife Cheryl on Curb’s upcoming eighth season, executive produces NBC’s new feel-good fall reality series School Pride. She is with WME and Principato Young.
