Veteran TV comedy director-producer Marc Buckland has signed a two-year overall deal with Warner Bros. TV to work on pilots and series. The deal will start in June when Buckland’s current pact at Universal TV is up. Buckland previously worked with WBTV on the NBC drama series The West Wing, on which he served as a director, and on the Fox comedy pilot Strange Brew, which he directed and executive produced. Buckland’s extensive pilot resume includes NBC’s My Name Is Earl, for which he won a directing Emmy, Grimm and most recently NBC’s comedy The Gates last season. He is repped by ICM Partners and ESA’s Paul Alan Smith.
