Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon has signed a two-year overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. Gordon already has an existing relationship with the TV studio — he is the co-creator/executive producer of the Sony/Happy Madison-produced Fox comedy series Breaking In, which was recently renewed for a second season. Gordon directed 3 of the 7 episodes from the series’ first season, including the pilot and the season finale. Gordon, who co-created Breaking In with writer Adam F. Goldberg, will continue to serve as an executive producer on the Christian Slater-starring comedy in season 2 while also developing new projects for Sony TV. Additionally, Gordon is reuniting with Goldberg and Happy Madison. He has come on board to direct the untitled 1980s family comedy Goldberg has in development at Fox with Happy Madison and Sony TV producing. Separate from the Sony deal, Gordon has named Mary Rohlich his development executive. In TV, Gordon has directed episodes of ABC’s Modern Family and NBC’s The Office, Parks & Recreation and Community. Gordon, who started off as a documentary filmmaker, directing the gaming documentary The King of Kong among others, made his feature directing debut with Four Christmases. His sophomore effort, Horrible Bosses, has grossed more than $200 million worldwide. Gordon, repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment, is currently developing a reboot of the 1983 thriller War Games for MGM.
