"The Walking Dead" show runner Glen Mazzara might be headed out the door after the season three finale, but he wasn't unemployed for long. TV.com reported on March 15 that Mazzara signed a deal with Fox TV Studios to develop shows for their networks.
This is a nice move for Mazzara, who spent time at Fox working on the FX series "The Shield." It also makes sense because it was FX show runner Kurt Sutter who came out in defense of Mazzara when the news broke that Mazzara was leaving the show. In a curse filled rant, the "Sons of Anarchy" creator said, in no uncertain terms, that AMC was making a huge mistake and doesn't treat their show runners with any respect.
Mazzara was the second show runner in three seasons that AMC let go from "The Walking Dead," following Frank Darabont.
Glen Mazzara has been very quiet about his leaving the series and has not made any embarrassing or derogatory statements about AMC in the entire ordeal. However, he did have very interesting choice of words when talking about heading back to Fox.
“I’ve had a long history with Fox Television Studios, and it feels good to set up shop at a studio that I respect and trust," Mazzara said in a statement.
It speaks volumes about his feelings about AMC after working on "The Walking Dead."
