The deal is to see the showrunners developing film and television projects for Gurney.

In addition, Worsoff served as co-executive producer at Gurney Productions, assisting in the launch of Spike’s Auction Hunters and A&E’s Duck Dynasty. He also launched CW’s Shedding For The Wedding and ABC Family’s The Vineyard as co-executive producer for 25/7 Productions.

ThunderPants is represented by Gordon Hvolka and Ryan Wackerman of agency ICM Partners, and Bob Lange and Uri Fleming of entertainment law firm Kleinberg Lange.
