Journeyman writer signs deal with 20th Century Fox TV

journeymanFirst, Journeyman director Alex Graves signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV, and now Tom Szentgyorgyi, who recently joined the NBC series as a writer (coming off the short-lived Drive) has also inked a deal with the studio to develop new projects.

Szentgyorgyi apparently came highly recommend from such TV bigshots as Stephen Bochco, whom Szentgyorgyi worked with on NYPD Blue. Szentgyorgyi also wrote for Law and Order and The Nine, and began his television career as a writer on Sports Night.

Journeyman, which debuts this fall, sounds a lot like Quantum Leap, as it centers on a man who keeps jumping around in time. That's probably an unfair and presumptuous claim, as the series' protagonist finds out his purpose is to save one person, and not to save someone new in every episode. If anything, the "skipping around in time" concept reminds me more of Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five.
