Parks And Recreation co-executive producer Matt Murray has closed a two-year overall deal with Universal Television, which produces the NBC comedy. He will continue on Parks & Rec, which was picked up for a 13-episode seventh and final season. When that wraps, he will move to Universal TV’s Fox comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, also serving as co-executive producer. He also will supervise and develop new projects for the studio. “Matt has been a valuable writer on our gem of a show, Parks and Recreation, and we look forward to extending our relationship with him at Universal Television,” the studio’s EVP Bela Bajaria said. Murray, repped by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment, started his career as a writer on Saturday Night Live and also worked on NBC’s Community and Fox’s The Cleveland Show.
